Charlestown Jan^ 21"* 1781 

I have received your Letter of the 19*^^ Inst: & am to thank you 
for the very proper measures you took to free the Country from 
the Enemy's Plundering Parties, & trust you will, in a great 
degree, hinder their again crossing to your Side of the River. To 
this End it will be necessary to keep a watchful Eye on the Passages 
between you & Nelson's Ferry, & be attentive to the communica- 
tions with that Post, on which Subject I now write to the Com« 
Officer there. 

I am. Sir 

Your obedient humble Servant 
W. Balfour. 
Lieut: M'^Pherson 
(Turn over.) 

1 The gallant and able officer who was in command of Fort Motte when it 
was besieged and taken by Greene's troops in May 1781. The driving away 
of the families of Whigs from their plantations is consistent with Balfour's 
action in the execution of Col. Isaac Hayne. 



P. S. I must request that you will be so good as to take par- 
ticular care, that the family's of those who have joined the enemy 
are not suffered to remain on their plantations but sent off imme- 
diately— W. B. 
from Col° Balfoure 
to L* Mcpherson,

My d' G' 

Calling on the C. de la L': a few days ago to congratulate him 
on the Arrival of the F: Fleet in the Bay of C:S The Conversation 
after a time was turned to the Object ag**: which it was hoped the 
armament was to be employed when the Reduction of C^ should 
be accomplished; & I embraced the Opp'y of urging as far as I 
was able the necessity & practicability of recovering C. T. to the 
Union — The Minister appear'd (as he always has been) anxiously 
disposed to advance the Operation, & desired that I w*^ Submt to 
him in writing my Ideas of the practicabiUty, promising to make 
up of his best Services w*'*: the C. de G: for a naval Cooperation — 
the Candor & Confidence with which he has treated me, the Influ- 
ence which his Interest may possibly have on the Conduct of the 
Admiral, & the Import*'® of the Object which was to be obtained 
would not suffer me to hesitate; & I complied with his Request 
the day before Yesterday by delivering to him such Sentiments 
as I could well throw together within the Compass of a Letter — 
urging in addition to the practicability of the Measures, such 
political Reasons as my Ideas suggested to me for a speedy 

^ This is a rough draft of a letter to Gen. Washington written before the 
surrender of Comwallis. The original dated Philadelphia, Sept. 12, 1781, 
is still in existence as a part of the correspondence of Gen. Washington now in 
the Congressional Library. It shows the deep interest in his State felt by 
Edward Rutledge, who had just been released from captivity at St. Augustine, 
and shows the friendly terms upon which Rutledge, as was the case with most 
of the leaders of the Revolution in South Carolina, was with Gen. Washington.

I observed to him that, as the F. Fleet in A: was now not only 
vastly Superior to every th^ the B : have, but to every thing which 
they can have, even when reinforced by Adm'r D: with 6 Sail of 
the Line, that it w*^ be impossible for the Eng. to venture an 
attack on them, or attempt the Relief of C. T. with a probabiUty 
of Success: we had therefore reduced to a certainty, the Force, 
against which we w"* have to contend. 

The Season of the y'" from the begining of Oct° to the End of 
the Winter, was on every Ace* the most eUgible for operating — 
provisions of all Kinds being then in greater plenty, & of better 
Quahty than at any other period — The weather usually remark- 
ably fine — the Climate peculiarly Healthy, & the Strength of the 
United Army full half way from their late Station, to the Scene of 

That should C^ be overcome (as Heaven's grant he may) the 

Ace* of it would arrive in England just ab* the Meeting of P 't — 

an important period in which the Ministry w^ be enabled to 
Props with more Confidence one or oth'' of the following plans — 
either to open a Negotiation for a peace, or to Seek out Some new 
Alliance; to obtain which they must & would make very great 
Sacrifices; or what was equally probable they w*^ annoy us with 
one, while they push'd the other — If the first plan alone Sh** be 
adopted to what Advantage Sh'^ we treat if in posso'' of C: T. — • 
if the latter sh*^ be successfully persued & we sh** not be in the 
possession of C. T. on the arrival of the reinforc*" to the Gen: in 
C. T. it was impossible to say when or where we ever shall obtain 
it by Arms — In the Summer we shall be obliged to abandon the 
lower, to seek Health in the upper p* of the C°; to leave the Wealth 
of the State in the power of our Enemies, & Such Families as could 
not be remov'd, at their Mercy. Or else we must at all Events 
keep our Army in the Vicinity of the Town, & suffer it to be con- 
sumed by sickness — In Short that there was every thing to be 
expected from an immediate Exertion, everything, to be dreaded 
from a delay — I farther observed to him that if we possessed our 
selves of it at an early period We should have the Benefit of the 
present Crop which will be soon harvested & be in time to prepare 
for the ensuing year; which, tho' not of very general nature, is 

* Comwaliis, 


deserving of Attentions, as will affect the Convenience of some 
Thousand Individuals, & those of the most helpless class — I then 
stated to him the Importance of the Southern States to France 
when considered in a commercial point of View — the great Advan- 
tages which She must derive from the Circumstances of those States 
being principally devoted to Agriculture, their bemg of course 
obliged to obtain from abroad almost all the Manufactures which 
they used & the probabihty there was of having a considerable 
part of their produce carried off in y^ Vessels of France; concluding 
the whole with observing That when the B: C: took their final 
Leave of A: in 1778 they declared y* they w*^ desolate the Country 
and render as httle useful to France as possible — that in their 
Declaration they appeared to have been sincere — That they had 
sent from the Southern States many thousands of Slaves by 
whom the Fields were cultivated, & probably in their last act of 
Rage and Malice they would reduce our Capital to Ashes — that 
the speedy Recovery of the State and a naval Force sufficient to 
prevent their Escape afther having perpetrated so savage an Act 
were the only Securities we could possibly have against Beings who 
have been so long destitute of Humanity, and who would make 
it their greatest Glory to wound in their vital parts a people united 
to his most Xtian Mag* as we were by every Sentiment which 
Affection & Gratitude c^ inspire. 

As I imagined it possible that what has passed on this Occasion 
might find its way to the Bay of C. I thought it nothing but a 
matter of Becoming DeHcacy as well as a Point of Duty on my 
part to communicate it to y° as soon as possible confident as I 
am that your Friendship will excuse the trouble which the perusal 
will give you & persuaded that sh*^ it become a Subject of conver- 
sation & there sh*^ be a possibility of their being appeaH they 
w<^ receive all poss Support from your better Reason. 

With the greatest Esteem & affect" I am my d' Gen^

fortunes have compelled them to enllft under the Ban-

and devoted to his Will— -who in Return for their Ser- 
vices, for the Toils, Difficulties and Dangers they have 
undergone, have neither received the Pay norCloath-

riencing the Want of almoft every Neceflary, us well as 
Comfort of Life ; — ^Let fuch Men fliew the Spirit be-

Kindnefs, and may fell their Arms, Accoutrements and

Such Natives of the Old Country as wifK to return 
Home, will have abundant Opportunities; while thofe 
who are 'defirous of enriching themfelves with the 
Spoils of our Enemies, or are anxious to acquire Military 
Glory, may enter into the Service of King George.

List of Persons ordered out of Charlestown April 28, 1782. 

' The numbers of the Royal Gazette, then printed in Charleston, between 
March 23 and May 22, 1782, are missing from the volume owned by the Charles- 
ton Library Society, and it is impossible to say from this source whether this 
proclamation was issued in Charleston only, as it purports to be. The House 


of Commons had on February 27, 1782, adopted without division a resolution 
praying the King not to pursue further the object of reducing the Colonies to 
their allegiance. This news was probably not known in Charleston when this 
bitter proclamation was issued. On April 4th Gen. Leslie commanding the 
British forces in Charleston attempted to procure the suspension of the con- 
fiscation Acts passed by the Jackscnborough Assembly in January of that year, 
and the prevention of further devastation on either side, by suggesting the 
appointment of Commissioners with a view to coming to an agreement on the 
subject. Governor John Mathews, elected by that Assembly, refused this 
suggestion (Ramsay, Revolution In So.Ca., Vol. 11,355). This proclamation 
and the expulsion from Charleston of prominent Whigs and their families 
may have resulted from that refusal. There was certainly a renewal of incur- 
sions from Charleston into other parts of the State. 

'* The absence of the files of the Royal Gazette mentioned above prevents the 
verification of this list. Most of the information as to the persons e.^elled is 
taken from the almanac of John Tobler, published in 1782 when the British 
were in possession of Charleston, and from the almanac for 1785 published 
after the end of the War. Both of these almanacs may be found in the Charles- 
ton Library. 

8 John and William Harvey were brothers and men of property and steady 
"patriots." WilUam was one of the prisoners confined on the prison ship 
"Pack Horse." It was on behalf of these prisoners and those confined on the 
prison ship "Tarbay" that the famous letter was written by their ranking 
officers saying that if the threats of retaliation upon them, made by Balfour, 
were carried out for acts of retaliation by Gen. Greene for the execution of Col. 
Isaac Hayne, and it should fall to the lot of any of them to be "made victims," 
they had "only to regret that their blood could not be disposed of more to the 
advancement of the glorious cause to which they had adhered." (Ramsay's 
Revolution in So. Ca., Vol. 11, 535.) 

' Daniel Hall, member of a whole family of patriots. Daniel Hall & Co. 
did business at 5 Tradd Street in 1785.

13 Jonathan Scott married Ann Harleston. His will was proved April 3rd, 

"i Tunis Tebout was a "Liberty Tree" patriot of 1766. 

" Mrs. Meyers. Philip Meyer was on the "Pack Horse." This lady may 
have been of his family. 

1^ Charles Pinckney was the father of Governor Charles Pinckney whose 
draft of a Constitution of the United States was so largely used in drafting 
the present Constitution. The father had been a member of Rutledge's council 
and had afterwards taken protection. 

19 Peter Bacot. The father of Thomas Wright Bacot for many years Post 
Master of Charleston. 


" Edward Shrewsbury, One of the well known family now extinct. Stephen

prising all of the land between King, Vanderhorst, Radcliffe and Smith Streets 
was his. 

"Mrs. Somersall. William Somersall was a merchant in Charleston in 

2" John Colcock was the Counsel for Col. Isaac Hayne at the time of his 
execution (See Genealogy, Vol. Ill, page 218 of this Magazine.) 

^ Wilham Mason was Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas in 1784, probably 
a reward for his fidelity. 

22 WiUiam Print was an Attorney at Law. 

23 Roger Smith was a wealthy merchant of the Smith-Rhett family. (See 
this Magazine, Vol. IV, page 41.) He married Mary Rutledge, sister of Gov- 
ernor Rutledge and her fuU length portrait by Romney was long an ornament 
of Charleston exhibitions. 

2^ Mr. Stark. There were three of the name known during the Revolutionary 
War. Col. Robert Stark was imprisoned in the Provost afterwards the "Old 
Post Office." 

25 Samuel Legare. Also imprisoned for a time in the Provost. 

2s John McCall, an insurance broker at 77 Church Street in 1782. The 
family were well known Whigs. 

2^ Daniel Cannon. Cannonsborough was named after him. It comprised 
a large tract of land with mill ponds north of Bull Street and west of Smith 
and Coming Street. 

28 John Webb. Webb & Doughty were in business together in 1785. 

2* Thomas Doughty. In 1782 he was a carpenter at 108 Meeting Street. 

3" Christopher Williman of the well known family still existing.

man of great distinction, officiating at the Independent Church and a firm ad- 
herent of the American cause. He died August 11th, 1777.

Oct' 4*1' 1782 

In Obedience to your Excellency's Request to proceed on Wed- 
nesday last to M" Elliott's at Accabee to meet such Gentlemen as 
should be appointed by L* General Leslie & to receive & discuss 
such Propositions as they should think fit to make relative to the 
Redelivery of American Property within the British Lines — Be- 
tween two & three o'Clock in tlie afternnon of that Day M' 
Alexander Wright & M"" James Johnston answered on the part of 
General Leslie & open'd the Business by saying that they had been 
sent to by that Officer about nine o'Clock in the Morning but had 
not had access to him until twelve when he desired that they would 
meet your Excellency's Commissioners and make the following 

"That there s*^ be a Restoration of all American Property now 
within the British Lines, such only excepted as he should be obliged 
to remove, by which was to be understood such of our domestics 

^ Mr. Hall, Also a prominent Whig family. Several of them held important 
offices after the Revolution.

*^Mrs. Liimen. Probably "Linning," of a well known family. 

^'William Roper Uved at 52 Bay Street in 1782; of the well known family. 

^*Mrs. Warley. FeUx Warley was Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas 
in 1784. Felix, Paul, Joseph and George, all officers in the Continental Line, 
were probably her sons. 

*" On August 17th, 1782 Governor Mathews had written to Gen. Leslie 
threatening that if the property of the citizens of South Carolina was carried 
off by the British fleet, which was assembling for the evacuation of Charles- 
ton, he would seize the debts due to the British merchants then in Charles- 
ton. This had led to the appointment of Commissioners on either side who on 
October 10th, 1782 came to an agreement, seeking to prevent, among other 
things, the carrying off of negroes belonging to citizens of the State, upon 
the fleet. This letter is a draft of the first report made by Edward Rutledge 
and Benjamin Guerard, appointed by the Governor, with regard to their 
efforts to reach an agreement. 


as had rendered themselves obnoxious to their Masters by being 
servicable to the British: that they would nevertheless be fairly 
valued and fully paid for. Upon Condition that y"" Excellency 
& the Council would agree to a suspension of the Confiscation 
Act and pledge themselves to use their best Endeavours as well in 
their Judicial as official Capacities to obtain a total Repeal of that 
Act upon the next meeting of the Legislature" Your Xcy's 
Com'ers answered them by saying that the Act of which the 
Repeal was required had been passed in the full assembly, upon 
mature Deliberation & with the fuU concurrence of both Houses, 
that y' Xcy. would therefore in our opinion assume a great deal too 
much should y° attempt to suspend the Operation of that Act & 
that therefore any Interference with it on that Head y"" Xcy's con- 
sidered was utterly inadmissible. The British Commers replied 
that they were not at Liberty to make any further offers, General 
Leslie having declared his Resolution in Case his propositions should 
not be acceded to to carry off all the Property he could possess him- 
self of, that Compensation might be made to the Friends of British 
Government for their Losses. But that as the Subject which 
we were discussing was of vast Importance, & as they were at 
Liberty to Hsten to any Proposition from us they were desirous of 
knowing what engagem** we would enter into for the Property in 
Question — y' Excys Commers then answered that in passing the 
Act above mentioned the Legislature had exercised a great Degree 
of Humanity by exempting from Confiscation Debts due to British 
Merchants, to their own Citizens who were the Object of the Act, 
& Settlements fairly made for the Provision of Famihes — that 
such Lenity would appear the more conspicuous when our former 
Forbearance was recollected & compared with the conduct of 
British Generals [Lord Cornwallis's name written and erased] 
from the time that the American Government had been established 
on the Ruins of the Royal authority until the Reduction of Charles 
Town the Pt^ of the Subjects of G: B: & of our own Inhabitants 
who had declared their Sentiments & with drawn from our Society 
had been secured & protected by Our Laws, And how had we been 
requited? We had been requited in the following Manner — the 
The Capitulation had been infringed as soon almost as it had been 
signed — the Property of nearly every Citizen who had adhered 
to his AUeg"*: had been sequestered & much of it squandered, — 


Marriage Settlements had been broken in upon — the validity of 
Contracts for the Sale of estates since the Revolution had been 
questioned for the Purpose of grasping the Property of our fellow 
Citizens — & even Debts which were due to our unfortunate 
Countrymen were made Objects for Sequestration — that in Con- 
seq""; of such Conduct we had sustained hopes (independent of 
the ppty in Town) infinitely beyond what we had confiscated, 
from thence we should have been fully justified in going every 
length; & that if the British should carry off such of our Property 
as was now in their Possession, the people of this State would hold 
themselves at Liberty to proceed to the Extremity of Power: that 
having now given this previous and timely notice if they by their 
Conduct should compel us to go into measures painful to our 
feelings & injurious to their Interests the Misfortune & the Faults 
would be on their own Heads as we had in what was withheld from 
Confiscation ample Funds for Reperation? Yet as we wished to 
avoid any further Measures which could occasion them Distress 
we were ready & willing on our part to do every thing in our 
power to prevent: & then Your Eccy's Commers made the follow- 
ing Proposition &c &c. 

The British Commers replied that the Proposals appeared de- 
serving of serious Consideration & requested that they might have 
an opp'y of communicating them to Gen^ L. to which we readily 
agreed & they accordingly returned to Town that Even'g & came 
up again about two oClock to day with the following Answer — &c. 

It appearing that nothing more could be done in this Business 
an End was put to the Conference by mutually declaring that we 
did not consider the Propositions on either side as any longer 
binding & that each Party was as much at Liberty as before the 
Conference We have the Honor to be 

from Ed" Rutledge

The arms given in the family papers, imperfectly blazoned are: 
"A red cross on silver shield, a black cross crosslet fitchee. Crest: 
hand erect holding a red cross". 

Burke's Armorie (1851) gives for Seabrook, Arms: Argent, a 
lion pass, gules, in chief a cross crosslet fitchee sable. 

Crest: a hand erect, holding a cross crosslet in pale gules. 

In this attempt to give some account of the earlier generations 
of the Seabrooks, a prominent and influential family who settled 
in Colleton County sometime before 1680, only the pubHc records 
have been used, for such family accounts as the Compiler had 
access to, were mainly traditional, and did not agree with data 
found in the pubhc records. As the Colleton records before 1865 
have been destroyed, and the Charleston records show many sad 
gaps and the Seabrooks, as a rule, seemed to have failed to leave 
wills, there are several problems which have been settled by 
negative, rather tlian positive evidence. 

Much valuable assistance has been given by D. E. Huger Smith, 
Esq. and M. Alston Read, Esq. both in collecting the material 
and in solving the various interesting problems which presented 


Captain Robert Seabrook (1652-1710), an English Merchant, 
was the ancestor of the South Carolina family; he came to the prov- 
ince before June, 1680, and, from the will of his son John, he appears 
to have come from Dunstable, in the County of Bedford. As Rob- 
ert Seabrook, merchant, he gets a warrant in June, 1680, for 200 
acres of land, and warrants, dated Feb. 17 and 18, 1680/1 for 
two town lots in Charles Town, and in August 1683 one for 80 
acres for the importation of two servants.^ 

In January, 1692/3, he was granted lot no. 159 in Charles Town 
for a church yard^ [sic] 

1 Land Warrents, 1689-1692. 

2 Grant Book in Columbia, S. C, also this Magazine, Vol. IX, p. 21. 



In August 1692, he was accused of holding "unlawful Commerce 
w*** pyratts selling unto them provisions arms & ammunition," and 
was fined. ^ 

In April, 1697, he bought 2700 acres of land in Colleton County, 
and his son John bought 2080 acres." He was a Commissioner 
under the Church Act of Nov. 4, 1704;^^ was a Member of Assembly 
and speaker of the House in 1705,® and commanded a company 
from the Islands during the French Invasion in 1706.^ 

Robert Seabrook died December 7, 1710, in his 59th year, and 
his wife Sarah died June 16, 1715, in her 47th year; they, with 
their son Benjamin, were buried at the old St. Pauls Church, 
Stono, near Church Flats, where their tombstones still remain.* 

Robert Seabrook left a will, which is missing; from other wills, 
deeds, and inventories, he appears to have had children as given 
below, order of birth unknown. Sarah was probably a second 
wife, for according to her tombstone she was seventeen years 
younger than her husband, and the manhood dates of John Sea- 
brook, son of Robert, make it seem unlikely that he could have been 
her son. 

Robert Seabrook (1) had issue: 

2. i. John Seabrook, of age by 1697, therefore bom 1676 or 

earlier. Will made 1706; married Ann — 

3. ii(?). Thomas Seabrook, of age by 1712, therefore born

John Seabrook (Robert, 1) of Colleton Co. Bom before 1676; 
purchased 2080 acres of land May 15, 1697. Made his will April 
15, 1706 (no date of proof); he died before Jan. 1712. 

In his wilP° he describes himself as John Seabrook of Colleton 
County, and mentions the following: 

Poor of the Parish of Dunstable, County of Bedford, England 
£100 Sterling. Eldest son of Joseph Peddiphett living in the 
Barbican near Aldersgate London, £50 Sterling. 

Eldest son of Joseph Fossey of "Hochley in the Whole" Middle- 
sex, £50 Sterhng. Wife Ann Seabrook £200 currency of So. Ca. 
in lieu of her thirds. Father, Robert Seabrook £200 currency 
in trust for daughter Martha when sixteen or married. Son James 
Seabrook £500 currency when 20, clear of all charges for his educa- 
tion &c. To Brothers and Sisters [not named] £20 currency each. 
To father Robert Seabrook Esq. of Colleton Co., all lands, negro 
and Indian slaves, horses, cattle, hogs and stock whatsoever. 
Father Robert Seabrook sole executor, Dated 15 April, 1706 [date 
of proof not given, but the will just before this was proved in April 
1712, and the onefollowing provedinMay, 1712.] Witnesses, Evan 
Mackpherson, Hugh Hext, Benjamin X Lamboll [mark] and Henry 

In January, 1712, an act was passed to enable Capt. Arthur 
Hall, Capt. John Whitmarsh, and Mr. Robert Seabrook, adminis- 
trators of John Seabrook, late of the Province of CaroHna, planter 
deceased, with will annexed, to sell the lands of said John Seabrook 
to pay his debts, legacies &c. 

John Seabrook (2) had issue: 

1. Martha, no further record. 

2. James, no further record. 

3. Child unborn in 1706 no further record.

Thomas Seabrook (Robert, 1). The inference is strong that 
Thomas was a son of Capt. Robert, but no conclusive proof of the 
relationship has been found. On 26 Dec. 1712, '• as Thomas Sea- 
brook of Colleton Co., planter, he mortgages to Capt. Arthur Hall, 
John Whitmarsh and Robert Seabrook, administrators, with will 
annexed, of John Seabrook, two plantations in Colleton County 
2080 acres on the west side of the Ashepoo River, and 380 acres 
adjoining, in all 2460 acres bounded east on the river; WilUam 
Parrott Edmund Cook and William Allen witnesses. The number 
of acres first mentioned, 2080, agrees with the number purchased 
by John Seabrook in 1697; probably Thomas Seabrook purchased 
John Seabrook's lands, giving a mortgage on same. On 23d. 
January, 1715/16, as Thomas Seabrook, of Colleton, planter, he 
gave a bond^^ to Capt. Anthony Mathewes of Charles Town for 
£997 current money, and mortgaged to Mathewes the following 
Slaves: Negroes, Jolly, Sampson, Daffiny Betty and ffrancisca; 
two Indian men, Peter and Anthony, and four Indian women, 
Catrena, Judy, Hager and Sarah. 

The latest date yet found for Thomas Seabrook was 16 April 
1720, when, with WiUiam Parrott and Lud. Grant he witnessd a 
deed^^ of release from Arthur Hall and Martha his wife to Robert 
Seabrook, of 372 acres, Wadmalaw Island, adjoining land formerly 
Richard Underwood's, then Samuel Underwoods, being part of 
1800 acres surveyed and run out April 1699 for Capt. Robert 
Seabrook, and conveyed 21 Aug. 1710, by deed of gift to Arthur 
Hall from his father-in-law, Capt Robert Seabrook. 

Thomas Seabrook appears to have married twice. There is a 
Seabrook group, which by careful examination and elimination, 
seem to be the children of Thomas by Mary , who was prob- 
ably a kinswoman of the Hexts', for Alexander Hext, in his will, 
made 16 July 1736^^ leaves most of his estate to John and Richard 
Seabrook, Sarah Green, Mary, Elizabeth and Susannah Seabrook, 
children of Mrs. Mary Seabrook, but does not mention a relation- 
ship. John Seabrook of the Hext will, had a brother Benjamin

who is not mentioned in the said will; this possibly points to his 

having a different mother. 

Thomas Seabrook (3) seems to have had issue by a first wife, 

name imknown: 

i. Benjamin Seabrook of St. Paul's parish, bom 1716 or 
earUer. Married 7th April, 1737, Mary Bonneau.^^ 
On Dec. 13, 1745,^^ John Seabrook of John's Island, 
gentleman, gives to Thomas Farr of Charlestown gentle- 
man as trustee, in consideration of love and affection 
which he (said John Seabrook) bears to his brother 
Benjamin Seabrook and Mary the wife of said Benja- 
min, and Elizabeth the daughter of Benjamin and 
Mary, five negro slaves (named), for the use of wife 
and daughter of said Benjamin Seabrook, without his 
interference, and any other child born to said Ben- 
manin and Mary. On the death of Benjamin Sea- 
brook, Thos. Farr to convey said five slaves to the said 
Elizabeth Seabrook, and any other child of Benjamin 
and Mary. If Benjamin die without issue, then one 
half of slaves to Mary, wife of said Benjamin Seabrook 
and the other half to return to John Seabrook or his 

On Feb. 3d, 1753'^ Benjamin Seabrook, as adminis- 
trator, makes returns from the sale of the estate of 
Mrs. Mary Seabrook at Ashley Ferry; the purchasers 
at the sale were George Saxby and Wm. Harvey 
(sons-in-law of Mrs. Mary Seabrook), Benjamin Sea- 
brook, and Mrs. Bosom worth (her daughter). It is not 
easy to distinguish between this Benjamin Seabrook, 
and Benjamin the son of Joseph (9), but that they 
are not one and the same is evident; the further his- 
tory of this Benjamin has not been recovered. 
Thomas Seabrook had issue by Mary — : 
ii. John Seabrook, of St. Bartholomew's Parish, born 1719 
or earlier, died before June, 1750; married before March

mercial Transactions: He discharged the social, relative and re- 
hgious Duties as became a Christian; well acquainted with useful 
and polite Learning, hospitable, benevolent; a warm and steady 
Friend, a chearful Companion: His Friends will long deplore the 
Loss of so valuable a Member of Society and so good a Man. 
(Monday, November 4, 1771.)

Consort of Benjamin Huger, Esq — Mr. Thomas Lind, Factor, a

Deaths.] In the 72d. Year of her Age, Mrs. Mary Bull, Relict 
of John Bull, Esq; Brother of the late, and uncle to the present, 


Lieutenant Goveraour of this Province. — Mrs. Rachel Himely, 
Wife of the Reverend Mr. Himely. (Monday, November 25, 

Death.] Mrs. Mary Beale, Wife of John Beale, Esq; a Lady 
much and deservedly regretted by all who had the Happiness of 
her Acquaintance. (Monday, December 3, 1771.) 

Death.] On Tuesday last, the 10th instant, died here, in the 
Seventy-Second Year of his Age, Dr. John Moultrie, an eminent 
Physician. He practised the Healing Art in this Place, for near 
fifty years, in its several branches of Physick and Surgery, with 
such success and to such an Extent as would have done Honour 
to any Character. By Nature endowed with Several rare qualities 
of Mind, which were carefully cultivated by a liberal Education, 
first in the Languages and Philosophy, and then in Physick and 
Surgery; and, while yet a young man, enjoying the singular ad- 
vantage of a personal Acquaintance with the first Surgeons of the 
Age, we cannot wonder that by those Helps and by the Example 
and Precepts of those Men, he gained that Degree of Knowledge 
which shown out with such Lustre in every intricate case whereon 
he was consulted. As a physician, he was eminently distinguished 
by his great Sagacity the first and leading Quality of that char- 
acter. He saw, almost intuitively, into the Nature of Cases, and 
consequently his Endeavour to relieve was as quick as the Relief 
was certain. His strong penetrating Genius should never be 
fettered by the Systematic Theories and Jargon of the Schools 
on the one Hand, nor could it, on the other, ever be subjected to 
or debased by a low irrational Empiricism. Vigorous and dis- 
cerning, his unbiassed mind enabled him always to see clearly, 
and judge properly. In surgery he has ever most deservedly, 
since his first settlement in this Place, borne the first Character; and 
in some Branches of that Art, his Skill and Success would have 
intitled him to the first Rank in any City in Europe. To his 
Character as a Physician that of a Gentleman was ever inseparably 
united. As a Father, happy in seeing his sons follow those Pre- 
cepts he had given, and make the proper use of that Education 
which he had himself planned and carefully seen carried into 
Execution. In private Life, easy, chearful, affable, facetious; 
fond of his friends, animating the social Hour in the rational 
Enjoyment whereof he knew much happiness was placed; firm 


and warm in his Friend^ip. His Conduct as a Citizen and Sub- 
ject was steady, uniform and consistant, unawed and unbiassed, 
with a Heart overflowing with Benevolence towards his fellow 
Creatures, he embrassed all with the Spirit of Humanity and true 
Christian Charity, and viewed none as his Enemies but the Ene- 
mies of Society. Those who knew him not may, from what has 
been said, form some, though very imperfect Idea of this great 
and good Man; those who knew him need only consult their own 
Breasts for his character. Justly may we lament the unspeakable 
loss of a Stock of Knowledge gained by such extensive Practice, 
and so long Experience; a Loss which may to this Place, and alas! 
to the weaker and more delicate Parts of the Society, prove irrepar- 
able. (Monday, December 16, 1771.)

Death.] "At Georgetown, December 20th, 1771, much re- 
gretted. Dr. William Fyffe, in the 43d. year of his Age, after a 
tedious and lingering Indisposition, which he bore with great 
Patience and Resignation. To the advantages of a liberal Educa- 
tion, and a retentive Memory, he added indefatigable Industry 
and Study; his Death is a Loss to the Community in general, but 
particularly to his Friends." (Supplement, Monday, January 6,

The parish Church of All Saints Waccamaw was, unfortu- 
nately, completely destroyed by fire on the night of Sunday, 
December 12th, 1915. Services were held in the building that 
morning and the church closed at one P. M. The fire was not 
discovered until 10 P. M., when some passing negroes found the 
building on fire and called Mr. J. H. Galbraith, the Rector, who 
lives near. The church was by then doomed, and there was only 
time to rescue the altar cross, and vases, the Bishop's Chair, an old 
Bible and Prayer-book and some altar hangings. 

This was the third church on this site; having been erected in 
1843, while Rev. Alexander Glennie D. D. was Rector. The 
church was quite a handsome one, substantially built of brick, 
and is thought to have cost between thirty and forty thousand 

The Mural tablets, (now gone) and inscriptions from the tombs 
in the churchyard, were printed in this Magazine Vol. XIII pp. 
163-176. Some account of the Parish and its church has been 
given by Judge Henry A. M. Smith in his "Hobcaw Barony," this 
Magazine, Vol. XIV, pp. 61-80; and the Rector, Rev. J. H. 
Galbraith, has given a full account of the destruction of the 
church, and also something of its history in The Diocese , for 
January, 1916.

By desire of M^ Melvin I take the Liberty of troubhng your 
Excellency with the relation of a Circumstance which respects 
him & myself — soon after my return home, I met upon the road 
& took possession of a Negro fellow who is my property & had 
been carried off by the Enemy— M"" Melvin laid claim to him 
alledging he had- purchased him in Georgia where he was con- 
demned & sold under the assumed name of Ben as part of the 
Cargo of a prize vessel captured by the Brig Edward owned by 
M'. Ogden of N°. Carolina & commanded by Cap". Samuel Good- 
erd. M"". Melvin farther alledges that the Negro was known 
to be my property at the time of Sale & that he bid for him with 
Intention of offering him to me — I cannot help observing that 
I never should have expected such unkind usage from a Court 
of Admirality in Georgia, being conscious of having endeavoured 
to conduct myself both in private & pubHc Life in such way as 

'This letter refers to what is said to have been the very last encounter 
in America between the British and American forces during the Revolutionary- 
War in which blood was shed. An expedition was planned by Kosciuszko 
to surprise a party of wood-cutters on James Island about a month before the 
evacuation of Charleston on December 14, 1782. It was a failure, the enemy 
being found ready for them, and the gallant Captain Wihlam Wilmot of the 
Maryland line was killed and Lieut. Moore referred to in the letter, also of 
the same line, was mortally wounded dying after the evacuation of the city. 
(Garden's Anecdotes, Vol. 1, page 91). 


to merit Milder treatment — I have refused to deliver up the 
Negro to M"". Melvin, & shall keep possession of him knowing 
that there is in my favour a Clause of an Ordinance of Congress 
passed in December 1781 by which the recap tor is only entitled 
to a "reasonable Salvage not exceeding 1/4 of the value" — which 
Salvage I shall willingly pay when it is properly demanded — 
M' Melvin says he gave £50 sterling for the fellow & I imagin 
his desire of my acquainting your Excellency with the facts 
arise from an Expectation of your Interference & good Office in 
getting the money refunded; to efifect which I doubt not you will 
be stimulated by that Love of Equity Justice and good Govern- 
ment which I have long known you to possess. 
Wishing you health and an easy Seat

[hERIOT and tucker TO JOHN RUTLEDGe] 

George Town 30*^ January 1795 

We have just received your's of the 23 Inst, and agreeably to 
your request have inclosed an aflfadavit setting forth the Loss of 
the Public Stores in the Department of the Commissary General 
taken by the British Forces in this place and the Vicinity in 
the year 1780. 

Annexed to the Affadavit are the kinds, quantity and Value 
of the Property to the best of our Judgement, any other informa- 
tion you may wish to have we shall be very ready to give it. 

The vessels that were Captured were Loaded with Provisions 
in order to send round to Charleston but being detained at this 
Bar for some time by adverse Winds it was Judged expedient 
to send them up the Waccamaw as high as they could possibly 
go for safety. 

' Arthur Middleton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence 
was elected a delegate to the Continental Congress by the Jacksonborough 
Assembly which met in January, 1782. Lyman Hall was Governor of Geor- 
gia for one term from 1783. Like Middleton he was one of the "signers." 


Mr. Cogdell is in the Country at present When he comes to 
Town we shall speak to him on the subject & make no doubt 
but he will do what you request.

My dear Sir, 

Brigadier General Washington called upon me on Saturday 
night and went oflE again on Sunday Morning. — His anxiety 
to get to Carolina as soon as possible (having been detained to 
the Eastward longer than he expected) prevented his passing 
more time with me. — He gave me the model of the Cannon which 
you was so good as to present to me, and by him I wrote a hasty 
line to you acknowledging the receipt of it &c. 

This morning I had the pleasure to receive, imder a blank 
cover from the War office, your obliging favour of the 3^. of Aug.* 
and a letter addressed to Brigad'. General Washington, which 
I shall forward so as to get to his hands before he leaves this state. 

Permit me, my dear Sir, to repeat my thanks for the model 
of the Cannon, and to assure you of my grateful acknowledge- 
ments for the kind and friendly sentiments contained in your 
letter. — No man can wish more sincerely than I do, that we may 
not be drawn into the conflict in which the European powers 
are now involved; but, at the same time, no one is more anxious 
that we should make every possible preparation to meet such an 
event, if it should be unavoidable. 

In order to this, we should embrace the present moment to 
make our Establishments as respectable as circumstances will 
permit, and neglect no opportunity of introducing into them every 


improvement in the Military Art that can be useful, let it come 
from what quarter so ever it may. 

I am sorry to inform you that M". Washington has been con- 
fined by a fever for some days past. She seems at present to 
be a little better; — but is still very low. She is thankful for 
M" Rutledge's kind regards and most Sincerely reciprocates 
them, in which she is joined by — My dear Sir, 

Your afifec*. friend and 

Obedient Servant

His Excellency 
Governor Rutledge 

* As General Washington died on December 14, 1799 this letter was among 
the last which he wrote. It is written in his well known handwriting, and with 
as much care as though he had been a man of leisure, and not in chief command 
of the armies of the United States when War with France seemed nearly upon 
us. The sentiments as to what is now called "preparedness" sound very 
modem. The "General Washington" mentioned in the letter was the Colonel 
Washington of the Revolution, who had married and remained in South Caro- 
lina after the War.

Benjamin Seabrook (Joseph 2. Robert 1), of Edisto Island, 
died about 1780 leaving a will which is missing. As we said 
before, owing to the lack of wills, it is hard to distinguish between 
this Benjamin, and Benjamin of St. Paul's parish (see page 18). 

Benjamin (9) and his brother Robert Seabrook, purchased 
May 14, 1751, of John Cattell 420 acres on Edisto Island. ^ March 
1st, 1755,^ Samuel Eaton of Edisto, gives a bond to Benjamin 
Seabrook. Samuel Eaton, of Edisto Island makes his will 16 
March 1757,^" making John Calder, Joshua Eaton Benjamin 
Seabrook his executors; July 5, 1763, "Kannaway" Eaton gives 
receipt to Benj. Seabrook for his share of his father Samuel Eaton's 
estate.^^ In the S. C. Gazette for August 3, 1761, Benjamin Sea- 
brook of Edisto Island, advertises for two runaway negroes, 
formerly the property of Mr. Benjamin Cattell. John May of 
Edisto Island made his will 3. Sept. 1765,^^ and mentions his 
Son William May, under 21; Mother Martha May, sister Martha 
Seabrook, and Brother-in-Law Benjamin Seabrook as sole execu- 
tor; proved 5. Oct. 1765, Benjamin Seabrook qualified. From 
the above will, it appears that Benjamin Seabrook married Martha 
May; later, May 1, 1767, he married Sarah Calder of Edisto 
Island,'^ who seems to have been the widow of John Calder, 
(d. 1766), and according to family tradition was born a Baynard.

was granted administration. 

Sept. 22, 1768, Kannaway Norton of Edisto, planter, grandson 
of George Norton of same place, with Ann his wife, sells to Benja- 
min Seabrook of same place, planter, 214 acres on Edisto, N. W. 
on Abraham Bush, S. W. on Robert Seabrook, N. E. on Andrew 
Townsend S. on creek.^* Oct. 29, 1768,'^ Benj. Seabrook pur- 
chased of Isaac Rippon and Joanna, his wife, two tracts on Edisto, 
one of 234 acres and one of 216 acres, north and west on creek, 
east on Joseph Seabrook, south on John Beckett. 

On 28th June, 1775,^^ Benjamin Seabrook of Edisto Is., St 
John's Colleton, planter, gives to his son-in-law, Ralph Bailey, 
six negroes; purchased of Edward Fisher & Co. June 17, 1774. 
Just how Ralph Bailey was his son-in-law does not appear; Sea- 
brook may have married a widow Bailey, or Ralph Bailey's first 
wife may have been a Seabrook, his known wife was Mary Splatt, 
and among his executors are "friends" Benjamin Seabrook and 
Thomas B. Seabrook, sons of the above Benjamin.

There is a sketch of the life of William Seabrook in the Southern 
Agriculturist for February, 1837, which gives some interesting 
details concerning him. From this sketch we gather that he 
was an able man of fine character, who overcame by his own 
exertions the financial and educational disadvantages of his youth, 
which were some what the result of the Revolutionary War. At 
seventeen he took charge of his own and his mother's estates, 
and managed them so well that they improved greatly. He was 
one of the first to cultivate successfully sea-island, or black seed 
cotton, said to have been introduced into Georgia in 1785, by 
Josiah Tatnal, who received from his father, then Surveyor- 
General of the Bahamas, a handful of this seed. Mr. Seabrook 
was among the first to test salt-mud as a fertiMzer for cotton; 
he also estabhshed a steamboat line between Charleston and 
Savannah, calling at the intermediate Islands; he was for many 
years an elder of the Presbyterian Church of Edisto, and gave 
liberally to educational and rehgious institutions; he left at his 
death, five thousand dollars to be used towards establishing a 
school in the Parish of St. Johns Colleton, and five thousand 
dollars to the Presbyterian Church on Edisto. Mr. Seabrook 
owned several large plantations; among them Seabrooks, (for- 
merly Simmons' Island, "White Point" on Slann's Island, lands 
on Johns Island, Wadmalaw Island, Edisto Island, and Hilton 
Head. He built several handsome houses, one of which he speaks 
of in his will as his "Mansion house." He had given his older 


children handsome estates and large sums of money as they 
reached their majority, and his inventory shows his personal 
property to have been valued at $376,916.60, a large sum for those

The Court Martial of which L*. Col°. Scott was Pres.* have 
reported Cap*. Mitchell of the Artillery charged 


1"*. With being absent from his alarm post on the Night of 
the 11*^. August. 

2^y. for beating & abusing a Matross one Gavin Ervin in Vio- 
lation of a standing Regimental Order.

man of that Corps. 

4thiy Pqj. treating Col°. Beekman (in the Character of Com«. 
Officer at the time when the whole Line was turn'd out & the 
Camp in an actual State of Alarm) with abusive & scurrilous 

5thiy jtqj. behaving in a manner unbecoming an Officer & 
a Gentleman. 

On the first Charge the Court was of Opinion that Cap*. Mit- 
chell was absent from his alarm Post on the Night of the ll***. 
Aug*. 1779, as it was conceived that it was his Duty to have been 
in the Park at the time of the Alarm notwithstanding no particular 
Post or Division had been assigned him; but as he was absent 
a very short time and had taken every Precaution necessary to 
receive the earliest Intelligence of an Alarm, they think the 
Charge rather frivolous. On the Second that the Court could not 
take Cognizance of it, as a punishment was annexed to a breach 
of that Order. On the 3^. 4**^. & S*"^. Charges that they could 
not be separately determined. But are of Opinion that Cap*. 
Mitchell did treat Col°. Beekman the Com^. Officer with abusive 
& scurrilous Language at the time when the whole Line was 
turn'd out & the Camp in an actual State of Alarm — They there- 
fore sentence that Cap*. Mitchell should be reprimanded in the 
presence of the Officers of the Artillery. 

It gives the Gen', pain that he is under the necessity of disap- 
proving the Sentence of the Court, but is constrained to do it 
as he thinks it totally inadequate to the Offence and that to 
approve it would be subversive of Order & Discipline in the Army.

Offer, he will improve it & push into the Town. 

In Case of a Repulse after having taken the Spring Hill Redoubt, 
the Troops will retreat to & rally in the Rear of that Redoubt,

from the Island of Rattan [sic], having been advised to leave 
his native Country on account of a deep Consumption which 
threatened his Life, he embarked for Jamaica, and was in his 
Voyage thither taken by a French Pirate and carried into Rattan 
where he lived six Weeks entirely upon Turtle, to which he ever 
ascribed the Cure of his Disorder. His greatest Foible was Credu- 
lity, believing the most improbable Stories even of his most in- 
timate Friends, and though told by persons he scarcely knew. 
For many years past he looked upon himself as the Champion of 
the Protestant Religion on this side of the Atlantick, seriously 
believing that the Papists, particularly the Jesuits were continually 
plotting his Destruction, and impressed with this Belief he never 
went abroad without Pocket Pistols or other private Arms. In 
this Weakness, however, he was not singular; John Dennis the 
Poet and Critick and many others, might be adduced as Exam- 
ples. He lived and died a Batchelor, was remarkably abstemious, 
and enjoyed the Use of all his Senses to the latest Period, particu- 
larly his Sight, being able to read the smallest Print without Spec- 
tacles. His remains, attended by many respectable Inhabitants, 
were decently interred in St. Michael's Church yard, on which 
Occasion it was remarked that six old Bachelors as Pall-Bearers 
could not be found in the whole Town. (Friday, March 3, 1775.)

mented by all who had the Pleasure of her Acquaintance. A de- 
vout Christian, dutiful Wife, tender and affectionate Parent, 
a sincere Friend and ready at all Times to relieve the Distresses 
of the poor and indigent." — At Savannah, John Forbes, Esq; 
formerly an eminent Merchant in this Town, but had resided 
for some Years past in Georgia; a Gentleman whose many valu- 
able Qualities render his Death sincerely regretted by a very 
numerous Acquaintance. (Friday, March 31, 1775.) 

Deaths.] Mrs. Bentham, Wife of Mr. James Bentham, Mer- 
chant. — Mr. William Johnston, of St. Bartholomew's Parish, 
late of Prince George's. — Mr. William Maine, Son of William 
Maine, Esq; of Prince William's Parish (Friday, April 7, 1775.) 

Death.] In Georgia, Mr. Robert Watts, an eminent Ship- 
builder, formerly of this Province. (Tuesday, April 18, 1775.) 


Deaths.] James Simmons, Esq. — Mr. Ephriam Hickling. — 
Capt. Samuel Wright, of the Brigantine Charlesiown-Packet, 
Sit Sea, a few Days after the Said Vessel left Philadelphia for this 
Port. (Friday, April 28, 1775.)

Esq. (Friday, May 5, 1775.) 

Death.] Mr. Robert Hawie, Merchant. (Friday May 19,

13th instant, Mrs. Margaret Sanders,^ aged 67 years 10 Months; 
who was a real Christian, a sincere Friend and a very valuable 
Neighbour. She is the last of the Family of the late Colonel

his Country." (Friday, June 16, 1775.)

que, Esq. (Friday, July 28, 1775.) 

Death.] After a short Illness, David Deas, Esq., an eminent 
Merchant of this Town, and Member in the present House of 
Assembly for the Parish of St. Michael: During a Residence of 
near thirty-seven years in this Province he served in several 
pubHck Stations and Ofi&ces, in all which he uniformly supported 
the repectable Character of a Worthy Citizen and honest man. 
In private Life, the Social Virtues of which he was possessed, 
and his general Philanthropy, conspired to make him universally 
regarded as a worthy Member of the Community. (Friday, 
August 25, 1775.) 

Deaths.] After a severe Illness, George Ingles, Esq; an eminent 
Merchant of this Town, where he had been a Resident about 35 
years. Happy in a numerous Offspring and a very extensive 
Acquaintance, his Death is much lamented, but most by those 
who had the Pleasure of intimately knowing so worthy a Man, 
and so valuable a Member of the Community,— John Remington.

gretted, Mr. Martin Campbell, of this Place, Merchant, of whom 
it may, with Truth, be said. That he was an honest Man, a most 
indulgent Master, a truly tender and affectionate Husband and 
Father and a meek and virtuous Christian. He bore for some 
years past, with the patience of a Job, that afflicting Disorder, 
the Asthma: a violet Fit of which put a Period to his afflictions 
in this Life, and let loose his Soul to share in the eternal Joys, 
prepared for those of the Just made perfect." (Friday, October 
20, 1775)

Set out from Cha^ Town 24th June and proceeded to the (torn) 
on Horsavannah the same evening, halted all Sunday there, & 
early on Monday set out for Green Savannah where I found 
Lieut^ Shubrick & Dunbar, then made a quick march thro' Jack- 
sonburgh to Andalusia & took up our quarters there till tuesday 
morning at which time we again set out with Our Servants, Musi- 
cians, and others in our Retinue making altogether thirteen Rid- 
ers, and crossing the Saltcatchers arrived at Pocotaligo to dinner, 
where being in hopes of getting some men we put up till the next 
morning, treated several with Wine grog etc, but enlisted none. 
On Wednesday we called at the Forest and dined, bated our horses 
& refreshed ourselves without any expense, in the afternoon pro- 
ceeded up to Mr. Palmers at Laurel Hill— lodged there, and on 
Thursday went on a recruiting party and enlisted two men, then 
returned and dined at Laurel Hill, where we spent the evening, en- 
listed two females for the service and on the morning following set

out for Barochocola, not finding any men there we proceeded to 
Sevannah River and arriving at the two Sisters BlufiF crossed it 
about eleven o'Clock the same morning, halted at a Tavern kept 
by One Pace and dined there upon bacon, greens and tough bread, 
and some cold victuals carried from Laurel hill, from thence we 
continued our rout to Mr. Dills — but some of our party who had 
stopped at the houses to try and enlist men not coming up with 
us this Night, we halted here till late next morning, at which time 
the Sergt. arrived with one Recruit. Our phaeton hounds being 
broke on the journey of the Night before we halted at a black 
Smiths about a mile further up the road near the Saw Mill to get 
it mended, and here read over to Capt. Green of the Militia sev- 
eral Political Papers which animated him and served to promote 
the business he was then upon of collecting the people together to 
chuse Delegates to represent them in a Congress to be held at 
Sevannah, the beginning of July, from this Smiths we proceeded 
on to Herberts Tavern in St. Georges Parish about 20 miles higher 
up the Country, and being informed of several men in and about 
that Neighbourhood willing to enlist we halted here three days, 
during which time we enlisted twenty men, all of them young and 
twelve of this number of the Grenadier size, on the Monday fol- 
lowing I gave a Barbacue to the Recruits with leave to invite their 
friends, and their Lasses of the Vicinage to a Virginia hop, about 
forty attending, the barbacue was served up, and as soon as din- 
ner was over the real Virginia dances began, & continued till the 
evening when the Lasses returned to their homes, and some of 
the men with them, having orders to meet me at Col: Burtons the 
morning after, from which place Lieut. Shubrick crossed Sevannah 
river with the Recruits and one Sergt. and marched for the head- 
Quarters at Chas.Town on the fifth day of July 1775. The Phae- 
ton being thoroughly repaired by Mr. Burton who keeps the yard 
here for building large boats, schooners, and I engaging two pretty 
boats from him, set out with the rest of my party for the upper 
Country, about eleven O'Clock and arrived at Mr. Stephen Smiths 
in Halifax County about 4 in the after noon of the same day, here 
we halted and received an invitation to spend two or three days, 
as Mr. Smith informed us there were to be two large musters within 
that time. One on the Carolina Side and the other on the Georgia 
Side, the One on the latter side was a company of Militia com- 


manded by Capt. Walker; one of the Old Protestors against ye 
Gen^ Proceedings of Savannaenses, when they formerly attempted 
to chuse a committee & elect Delegates to send to the Continental 
Congress in Phyladelphia, and Col: Thomas of the Halifax district, 
who was the leading man on this unhappy occasion, having acci- 
dentally fallen in company with those (Gentlemen) militia officers, 
a day or two before at a County Court where they presided as 
Magistrates, and retiring to dinner after the business of their 
Court was over I had an Opportunity of laying before those Gen- 
tlemen some Political pieces, which I imagine greatly contributed 
to their reformation, as they discovered the secrets of Our Arbi- 
trary Ministers, and explained all the Cruelties & injustice of the 
proceedings of Parliment against the Americian Colonies. 

The following day we went with Mr. Smith and Lieut. Dunbar 
being ill with a fever was left with Mrs. Smith whose care and 
attendance showd' her hospitality on this occasion to our sick 
Lieut, and the Recruiting Party under my direction to the Halifax 
muster where we saw about 200 men drawn up in Rank and file, 
their Col Thomas told them that he had called them to this muster 
to let them know the Georgians were again endeavouring to enter 
into an Association and to chuse Delegates to represent them in 
a General Committee to be holden at Sevannah early in July, that 
he had formerly been averse to the American Measures and op- 
posed them, but that he had now altered his mind and should do 
all that he could in the favour of America, he did not expect mat- 
ters wd. ever have come to such a height, but since the Battle of 
Lexington he was convinced America was to be hard rode, & drove 
like slaves if the Americans were inactive or inattentive etc. etc. 
that for his Part he could not sign the Association which he then 
held in his hand because he held two Commissions from the Kings 
representative, the Governor, that he intended resigning them 
within three days, & should then put his name at the head of the 
Association, this he declared at the head of the battalUon, recom- 
mending such as chose to sign it, many thereupon did sign it an 
Ensign gave his commission to the Col: & put his name also to it, 
others promised to put their names whenever they saw their 
Colonels & Captains names down tho' they did not think otherwise 
than that he wd. do as he had publicly declared to them. The 
battallion being discharged Col: Thomas assisted in persuading 


some young men to inlist and before dinner we got eight here, re- 
turning to Mr. Smiths that Night we set out early on the next 
morning for the Muster field at Williamsons Cow Pen, to meet the 
Militia company there commanded by Capt. Wilson, one of the 
Provincial Delegates, on our way, soon after we had crossed Se- 
vannah river, we overtook Capt. Ben: Cattell of the first Regmt. 
Also going to the same place, as we & imagined our business wd. 
clash, I agreed to inhst none but those of the Grenadier Size, and he 
promised to take none but those that were under that height, when 
we arrived the Company was drawn up, and consisted of about 
180 men in rank and file. The Capt. read the Carolina Associa- 
tion to them then called out for them to sign it, and it was in gen- 
eral signed, they were then told by the Capt. that the Congress 
had Resolved to Raise two Regemts. of five hundred men in each, 
that we were then come there to inlist any that were willing. I 
then told them the terms & conditions of their entering into the 
service, they in general declared their willingness to go forth when 
called upon by the Congress, but wd. not inhst nor were we able 
out of this Company of remarkably large size men to get more 
than Four, two of which Capt. Cattell inlisted, the cause of which 
I attributed to the Capt. who tho' he would show a seeming wil- 
lingness, often said that if he wanted to go they wd. go, but would 
not quit their Captain. Many of these men are young men & 
would be very proper for the Service as they have little, and some 
no property, but live on the cattle of the Neighbouring stocks, and 
the Deer they kill by fire hunting at Night, as I was well informed; 
we had a little humerous hop here & returned, into Hahfax County 
again the same Night to our hospitable friend Mr. Smith, where 
we rested one day being the Sabbath, and On Monday Lieut. 
Dunbar being able to ride, & being desirous of going to Town 
was sent off with Serg*. Hane. & fourteen Recruits and One 

The same day I crossed Sevannah River at Perry Ferry, & pro- 
ceeded up to Mr. Galphins at Silver Bluff, where I met wth. Capt. 
Cattle again, who had just got about 14 men ready to go for head 
Quarters. I halted here one day & inlisted two men Mr. Galphins 
hospitality was so great, it was with difficulty I would get away 
however after seeing his Indigo fields and Spiral Pumps, and break- 


fasting with his mixed breed^ daughters, Pohtely enough educated 
with music etc. etc., we set out for Augusta, & he with us as far 
as his Saw Mill about three miles distant from Galphin Town. 
We proceeded from this place on a rough road, & arrived at Fort 
More just in the close of the day. Fort More is built with stock- 
aids on a bluff about 200 feet above the bed of the River but is 
now so out of repair that neither the stockaids or the barracks 
are tenible. On this bluff One of the Creek Indians being brot to 
be sacrificed by the Schawanese Indians who had taken him in 
War, looking & laughing at a companion of his then torturing at 
the stake with the greatest contempt at his enemy, they asked 
him why he laughed? he said to see them know nothing of the true 
Art of Torturing and that if they wd loose his legs and arms and 
give him the barrel of a gun and a leather string he wd show them 
the way of his Country. The Schawanese fond of learning the Art 
of Cruelty, with eagerness loos'd him, he put the gun barrel into 
the fire then tying it with a Wet leather string gave it several 
whirls round him the crowd giving way, for fear of being burnt 
with the red hot barrel, he at length threw down the barrel & 
Jumpt into the river, from this high place and swam across, sev- 
eral shot at him as he swam, but fortune favouring the Courageous 
he arrived unhurt at the hospitable shore making a gesture of con- 
tempt disdaining them they ran some one way & some another 
some taking boats crossed the river in pursuit of the fugitive, and 
tracked him for a while but in vain, he intent upon his escape, 
again took the river and swiming down the current with only his 
nose above water could not be discovered by his enemy and these 
keeping the river one whole night & the best part of the whole 
day after made his entire escape and returned very expeditiously 
to his nation where he related the above, which was confirmed in 
part by the Shawanese themselves sometime after. — We crossed the 
river here and landing on a large gravel bank on the Georgia side 
proceeded on our journey for Augusta.

My Dear Child 

You wish me to inform you what I recollect of the introducing 
and culture of Indigo in this Country. You have heard me say I 
was very early fond of the vegetable world, my father was pleased 
with it and encouraged it, he told me the turn I had for those 
amusements might produce something of real and public utility, 
If I could bring to perfection the plants of other Countries which 
he would procure me: accordingly when he went to the West In- 
dies he sent me a variety of seeds, among them the Indigo, I 
was ignorant both of the proper season for sowing it, and the soil 
best adapted to it. to the best of my recollection I first try'd 
it in March 1741, or 1742, It was destroyed (I think by a frost). 
The next time in April, and it was cut down by a worm; I perse- 
vered to a third planting and succeeded, and when I informed my 
Father it bore seed and the seed ripened, he sent a man from the 
Island of Monserat by the name of Cromwell who had been ac- 
customed to making Indigo there, and gave him high wages; he 
made some brick Vats on my Fathers plantation on Wappo Creek 
and then made the first Indigo; It was very indifferent, and he 
made a great mistery of it, said he repented coming as he should 
ruin his own Country by it, for my Father had engaged him to 
let me see the whole process. I observed him as carefully as I 
could and informed Mr. Deveaux an old Gentm. a neighbour of 
ours of the little knowledge I had gained and gave him notice 
when the Indigo was to be beat; he saw and afterwards improved 
upon it, not withstanding the churlishness of Cromwell, who wished 
to deceive him, and threw in so large a quantity of Lime water as 

' This letter published by permission of the Charleston Library Society is 
omitted from those printed by Mrs. Harriott Horry Ravenel in her book Eliza 
Pinckney. The planting of indigo, supported by a bounty in Colonial days, 
came to an end when the province was no longer under the British Crown, and 
when cotton planting became profitable, owing to the invention of Whitney's 
gin, in the last years of the eighteenth century. 


to spoil the colour. In the year 1744 I married, and my Father 
made Mr. Pinckney a present of all the Indigo then upon the 
ground as the fruit of my Industry. The whole was saved for 
seed, and your Father gave part of it away in small quantities to 
a great number of people that year, the rest he planted the next 
year at Ashipo for seed, which he sold, as did some of the Gentle- 
men to whom he had given it the year before; by this means there 
soon became plenty in the Country. Your father gained all the 
information he could from the french prisoners brought in here, 
and used every other means of information which he published in 
the Gazette for the information of the people at large. 

The next year Mr. Cattle sent me a present of a couple of large 
plants of the wild Indigo which he had just discovered. Experi- 
ments were afterwards made upon this sort, which proved to be 
good Indigo, but it did not produce so large a quantity as the 
cultivated sort. I am 

Your truly affectionate mother, 
Eliza Pinkney.

that Cap*. Godfrey is guilty of neglect & do therefore Sentence 
him to be dismissed the Service of the United States — But as the 
neglect in the Office, appears to the Court to have originated with 
his superior Officer (whose Dictates he was obliged to submit 
to) and from Cap*. Godfrey's reputed good character, be leave to 
recommend him to the General's known Clemency to be continued 
in Office. 

The Sentence of the Court the Gen^ approves of and assents 
to their recommendation relative to Cap*. Godfrey's being con- 
tinued in Office, from his general good Character he has reason to 
believe that he will hereafter support it as a good officer.

Crime laid to his Charge & Sentenced to receive 100 Lashes on 
the bareback with a Cat o'nine Tails, but from his former good 
Character & behavior & this being his first offence, they recom- 
mend him to the General to have it mitigated or omitted. 

The Gen', approves the Sentence & directs it to be executed to- 
morrow Morning at Guard mounting, as the reason assigned by

tion of the Sentence.

Rousseau's uncle Bernard 

In Rousseau's Confessions (Oeuvres Postumes de J. J. Rousseau, 
Neuf chattel 1782, Tome Cinq Livre Quatre. page 170) the fol- 
lowing passage occurs: 

"Mon Oncle Bernard etait depuis quelques annees passe dans 
la Caroline pour y faire batire la ville, de Charles Town dont, il 
avait donne le plan; il y niourut un peu apres; ("My Uncle Bernard 
had gone some years since to Carolina to build the City of Charles 
Town of which he had made the plan. He died there shortly 

Col. Gabriel Bernard was never employed to "build" the City, 
but he was employed as engineer in charge of building and repair- 
ing its "fortifications" in 1736, and he died here in 1737. The 
first mention of him is found in the Journal of the Provincial Coun- 
cil of Friday, January 16, 1735-6 (Office Historical Commission 
of So. Ca., Mss Journal, page 170), as follows: 

"Read the Petition of Col. Gabriel Bernard praying he may be 
employed as Ingineer in this Province having produced a Com- 
mission and Certificate to this Board of his having served as In- 
gineer in Europe." 

On the same day this petition was recommended to the " Com- 
mons House" and that house (House Journal, same ofiice, page 354) 
on the same day debated the petition and "Letter of recommenda- 
tion from the Honrble. Coll. Schutz to his late Excellency Gov'r 
Johnson" and ordered that Col. Samuel Prioleau and Alexander 
Plext and Capt. Othniel Beale be a committee of Fortifications 
and should join a committee of the Upper House and confer with 
them and Col. Bernard on the subject. The Committee of the 
Upper House were Joseph Wragg and Thomas Waring. The 
result of this conference was the following paragraph of the Act 
of Assembl}^ of 1736. 

"That Mr. Gabriel Bernard shall and he is hereby appointed 
Chief Engineer, who shall constantly attend direct and inspect 
the raising and repairing such fortifications as the same commis- 
sioners shall think fit and shall be allowed at and after the rate of 


£700 per annum nevertheless subjected to be displaced and the 
said salary taken av/ay by vote or order of the General Assembly." 
(The value of a pound current money was about of a pound 

He was subsequently granted £100 current money with which 
to procure "such necessaries as he should have occasion for to 
undertake the fortifying the Town and Harbour of Charlestown" 
(House Journal, page 485) and £50 current money to defray his 
expenses in commanding the forces at Port Royal (Commons 
Journal, Feb. 9, 1736-7, page 506). He was buried in St. Philips 
Church yard 19 July, 1737. 

The inventory of his estate will be found in the office of the 
Probate Judge for Charlestown County in Book 1736-1739, page 
132 recorded 28th July, 1737. His original will and the copy of 
it on record were both lost in the removal of the records from 
Charleston during the Confederate War, but the usual notice to 
creditors to prove their debts against the estate was published by 
Samuel Prioleau, Executor, in the South Carolina Gazette of July 
16, 23 and 30, 1737.

Annotated by Joseph W. Barnwell 

Addressed: The Delegates of S°. Carolina^ 
In Congress. 

Camden, May 24th, 1780 

1 could not obtain a Copy of the Articles of Capitulation of 
Chas. Town, untill yesterday — Genl. Lincoln did not, it seems, 

J The originals of these letters of Governor John Rutledge are now in the 
possession of the Charleston Library Society and are published by their per- 
mission. They were presented to the Library by Mr. Thomas Bee, the son 
of Judge Thomas Bee, one of the delegates from South Carolina in the Conti- 
nental Congress. They were published in Russell's Magazine issued in Charles- 
ton from April, 1857, to March, 1860 (vol. 1, p. 534; vol. 2, pp. 81 and 270; 
vol. 3, pp. 30 and 243), but as this magazine is not upon Poole's Index, its 
contents are little known. They are not cited by, and appear not to have been 
known to General McCrady. The letters were besides published with numer- 
ous errors. They are most creditable to Governor Rutledge and give a pic- 
ture of the condition of affairs in this state after the fall of Charleston ob- 
tainable nowhere else. 

2 This letter shows that the action of the Continental Congress on June 23, 
1780, in unanimously adopting a resolution declaring among other things 
that "this Confederacy is most solemnly pledged to support the liberty and 
independence of every one of its members" was only taken after this letter 
was read to the Congress, and upon the report of a Committee appointed to 
consider it {Journal of Continental Congress, vol. xvii, p. 554). 



think it at all material, to inform me of it — b* I judge it necessary 
to acquaint you, &, thro' you, Congress, (to whom you will make 
the proper Representation of it), with the Situation of Affairs, 
here, at this period, I send, inclosed, a Copy of the Capitulation 
lest the Flag which the Gen^ had Liberty to send, with dispatches 
to Philadelphia, sh'd not have arrived — The terms of the Capitu- 
lation are truly mortifying — the Treatment of the Prisoners were 
so — the Contl. Officers are Prisoners on Parol, at the Barracks on 
Haddrells-Point & restricted to six miles from them — the Seamen 
& Soldiers are Prisoners at the Barracks in Town — thus separated, 
with a design to get 'em to enhst, & enter, into the British Serv- 
ice, which some have done already, & many, with't doubt, will — 
I hope Congress will efifect an Exchange, of these Troops, as soon 
as possible, (tho', it is probable, that Clinton will endeavour to 
avoid it), otherwise, in a httle Time, they may expect 'em turned 
ag*. us. — On Saturday last, the Enemy took Post with a consid- 
erable force at Dupree's ferry on Santee River which they began 
to cross, that day, on their March to George-Town, whither they 
had sent some Vessells, from C :Town, & they are certainly in pos- 
session of Geo :Town, which was not defensible, — Genl.-Casswell, 
who lay a little below Depree's ferry, wth the No. CaroUna Bri- 
gades, & the Virginia Continentals, under Col. Buford, had luckily 
retreated this way, before the Enemy got to that ferry, & thereby 
prevented their Cutting off his Retreat, which was probably their 
first Scheme — These Troops, now under Command of Genl-Huger, 
are abt. 15 miles below this place, & will be here today — Huger's 
Motions will be directed, by the Correspg force of the Enemy — 
Sorry I am to say, his force is altogether inadequate to any offen- 
sive Operation — The Enemy, according to advices reed, last 
Night, were, the Evening before, at Black-mingo — but, whether 
with Intention to take a Circuit, by way of the hanging Rock 
Road, in order to get in the Rear of our Troops, or, to proceed for 
No. Carolina is as yet, uncertain — The next Movem'*. they make 
wiU demonstrate which of These Points is there object — Parties 
are gone to reconnoitre; However I tho't. it adviseable, not to 
wait for their Return, but to give you the foregoing, & following, 
intelligence, as soon as possible — We have no certain accounts 
what the force above mentd. is, or, by whom commanded, but, it 
is said, & I beUeve it, to be considerable, & under Lord Cornwalhs. 


It is evident, that the Conquest of No. as well as of So. Carolina 
is the Enemy's plan — The Time for which they endeavour to en- 
list Men is untill these Countries are conquered; &, a Junction with 
the disaffected at Cross-Creek,^ will probably, be attempted by the 
Body above mentd., who have, with them, a large. Highland 
Regm'nt. I have good Reason to believe, that they will send 
vessells (some perhaps with troops,) to possess the Rivers, & the 
Towns on them, in No Carolina — &, it is probable, that they will 
estabhsh Magazines of provissions, at Brunswick, & Wilmington, 
whither they may send great Quantities of Rice from the lower 
parts of our State — They can hardly, I think, expect to penetrate, 
far into the back Country of No. Carolina, unless they depend, 
more than I hope they can wth. good Grounds, on the disaffection 
of the People there; but, I presume, they will extend their Course, 
along, & at some distance from, the sea — I hope, indeed, that 
their Progress will be soon checked, tho', their Numbers are really 
great, but, surely, Virginia will now be roused, & the forces of 
that State & of No. Carolina, powerfully supported by Congress, 
will make the Enemy repent of their Temerity in attempting Con- 
quests more Northwardly — I cannot account for the Backward- 
ness of the Troops ordered hither by Congress, & Virginia & for 
our Want of Intelligence, respecting 'em — We know not where any 
of 'em are — I still hope, however that a Combination of force, & 
better Fortune than our last, will soon oblige the Enemy to tread 
back their Steps, &, tho' I have no Hope of regaining Chas.Town, 
except by Treaty, that the Country will be preserved, & No. & So. 
CaroUna, & even Georgia, retained, in the Union, for surely, our 
Brethren & AUies will never give up the Independence of either 
of these States, or sufifer such valuable Territories to be lopped 
off — whether the Enemy will make any Attempts on our back 
Country, except by Tories & Indians,^ is still uncertain— If they 
send up a regular force, I am convinced they will be joined by 
Numbers, & many Men will fall a Sacrifice to the Resentment of 
our domestick or internal Enemies — But, if regular Troops are not 
sent up, I think our People will manage the disaflfected, & keep 'em 

' Now Fayetteville. 

* This statement of the probable effect of the taking of Charleston is abnost 
prophetic, and shows the grasp which Rutledge's mind took of the situation 
in this state. 


from doing any considerable Mischief : However, I expect no other 
service from the MiHtia — They are so apprehensive of their Fami- 
hes being killed & their Properties destroyed, (by the Tories & In- 
dians who daily threaten Hostihties,) whilst they are absent, from 
their districts, that I beUeve it will be impracticable to keep any 
Number worth mentioning on duty, with the Army, or at any dis- 
tance from their own Homes — If I can get 'em to embody, in their 
own districts, & keep the Country quiet, it is, really, as much as 
I expect they will do, at present & untill Troops arrive from the 
Northward — but Even this depends on the Enemy's not sending 
up regular forces, to take Posts in the back parts of the State, for, 
if they do the disaffected will certainly flock to them, & those who 
are not disaffected will either abscond, if they can, or, (which is 
more probable) be taken Prisoners with't. Arms, in which Case 
they will expect to be treated, as those are who have been taken 
under similar circumstances, viz. put on Parole — a piece of Policy 
which the Enemy have adopted, wth. respect to our MiUtia, for 
obvious Reasons — This is a melancnoly, but a faithful Accot. of 
our Affairs, at this Time — However, we must not despair: I will 
still hope for great & speedy Succours, from our Brethren, to ani- 
mate & support our People & for a Reverse of our late bad Fortune 
— But, immediate, & the greatest Exertions of the Northern States 
& of Congress are (be assured) indispensible, to prevent the Deso- 
lation & Ruin of this State & Georgia, & the Enemy's obtaining, 
(what they flatter themselves with shortly securing,) the three 
Southernmost States — too valuable a Prize ever to be given up to 
them — I request the favour of hearing, fully, from you, as soon as 
possible, & of knowing what Aid we may expect, from you, & 
when we may be assured of it — Genl. Gates or some other able & 
experienced Genl. with the Troops, who come will be absolutely 
necessary — We have not a Contl. Genl. here but Huger, whose 
Health will scarcely suffer him to undergo any kind of Fatigue — 
Colo. Hamilton is exchanged, & I suppose will do much Mischief, 
amongst his old Friends in No. Carolina — You will order the per- 
son by whom you write, to come the upper Road, & to proceed to 
Camp, wherever it may be — There, He will Either find, or hear of 
me — I am with great Esteem Gent. — yr. most obedt. Servt.

P.S. Private. 

Be pleased to send, to me, as soon as possible a Copy of Lin- 
colns Letter, to Congress, respecting the Capitulation— I want to 
know why, after the last reenforcem't. arrived (of 2500 men) he 
did not evacuate the Town & save his Troops, wch I think he 
might Easily have done, with all his Artillery, & Stores, by crossing, 
in the Frigates, & other Vessells, over to Lempriere's, & coming 
thro' Christ Church Parish, before the Cummunication was cut off, 
which wd. have preserved the Country, or at least, the Army, & 
probably frustrated the Enemy's plan of Conquering this State, 
much less of going to No. CaroHna — & why, even at the last, & 
when Cornwalhs was posted near Wappetaw, wth. 2500 Men, 
Lincoln did not end'r. to make good his way, wth. all his Troops, 
(which he might have done, tho'. with some Loss) rather than 
agree to so infamous a Capitulation, for the Garrison are in my 
Opinion, in Effect, prisoners at Discretion — These things appear 
mysterious to me, but, I will suspend a final Judgmt.,on them, 
till I hear what he says on the Matter.^ It is currently reported, 
& believed, here, that G. Britain will offer America, the Inde- 
pendence of all the States except No. & So. Carolina & Georgia — 
& perhaps even of No. C. — & that such a proposition will be ac- 
cepted — I think it impossible, that Congress will leave us in the 
Lurch — but, pray inform me candidly, & fully what may be ex- 
pected on that Head — If they never will give up the Independ- 
ence of any one State (which I trust they will not) it wd. be best 
to declare it immediately in the most pointed Terms, to satisfy 
the wavering & defeat the Schemes of our Enemies — Such a decla- 
ration generally made known with a good Number of Troops, wd. 
revive the Spirits of many of our credulous & dejected, tho' well 
meaning. People — 

All your Friends who were in Town are well — not a Militia Man 
killed or hurt, but Peter Lord killed & no officer of the Contmentals 
that I recollect, killed or wounded except Colo. Parker of the 
Virginians, & Cap. Tho. Moultrie killed— also PhihNeyle— I left 

« Probably no one knew better than General Lincoln that he should have 
saved a part at least of the garrison of Charleston before the surrender, but 
he lacked the decision of character to do so.

Caswells & Bufords Men are come up hither Each Corps con- 
sists of abt. 400 Efifective. 

Genl. Huger purposes sending Caswells to Haly's Ferry on Pedee 
in No. Carolina — and Buford's to Charlotte^ — from thence towards 
Hillsborough thinking this force too insignificant to resist the 
Enemy in this State & that they will be of more service in No. 
Carolina for the present where he apprehends the Enemy will 
Endeavour to make an Impression. 

Our Intelligence from below is that the Enemy had crossed 
Murray's ferry the day before Yesterday (abt. 85 Miles from hence)

Hillsborough, Septr. 20, 1780 

A Copy of Colo. Marions Letter to Genl. Gates, & of the Ex- 
amination of one Allmand, (which are transmitted, by this op- 
portunity, to Congress,) will inform you of our latest Intelligence 
from So. Carolina — but, I do not beheve that part of it which 
relates to Pickens's having taken part at Ninety-Six — I don't know 
whether the Genl. has sent to Congress, a Copy of Lord Corn- 
waUis's Letter to Colo. Balfour — I therefore inclose one — his Lord- 
ship sent similar Letters to the Officers commanding in the several 
districts throughout the State — I think it is beyond a Doubt, that, 

^ The division of these forces was most disastrous. Tarleton fell upon Bu- 
ford as he was retreating at Waxhaw's Church and practically annihilated 
his command giving little quarter. Governor Rutledge was himself nearly- 
captured at Rugeley's house by Tarleton's men. 


at least, 7 Men, of those who have declared themselves British Sub- 
jects & taken up Arms with the Enemy, & who had afterward 
joined our Party, have been hanged, & that the Houses of sevl. 
who had left 'em, have been burnt, upon a presumption, I suppose, 
that they had come over to us— On the 15th Inst., Colo. Sumpter 
lay, with abt. 200 Men, to the Westwd. of Catawba, Genl. David- 
son was with abt. 400 Militia, below Charlotte, & Genl. Sumner, 
with, (it is said,) abt. 800 more, that day reached SaUsbury where 
he halted, to get Pouches made for his Men, & this is all Our 
force that I can find to be actually embodied & in the Field, ex- 
cept the Httle Party under Marion, & a few at Cross Creek, under 
Colo. Harrington — not a man from Virginia is in this State, except 
abt. 250 Contls. under Beaufort, & abt. 60 of the Mihtia, who ran 
away from the action wth Cornwallis, & who have been lately 
brot. to Hillsborough, nor can we hear of any being on the March 
from Virginia — Genl. Gates reed, a Letter, from Govr. Jefferson, 
dated the 12th Inst, but he does not mention anything of the 18 
Months Men who were expected from thence — The 2000 Militia 
who, it is said, are to come from that State (in Addition to these) 
I am told will not rendesvous till the 25th. of next Month — I 
wish an apprehension that Portsmouth will be Chntons object, 
may not retard the March of the Virginia Forces — Genl. Gates 
says the Continentals at Hillsborough (who do not exceed 900) 
cant, march, until they are furnished, with Shoes, Shirts, overalls, 
& Blankets, & until Magazines are estabUshed to the Westward — 
If so, I fear it will be a very considerable Time before they stir — 
for, where these SuppHes are to come from, or when they will be 
procured I cant, guess — as yet, not a single Hide is obtained for 
making Shoes — Genl. Smallwood, to whom the Legislature of this 
State offer'd the command of its Militia, will go, in 2 or 3 days, to 
Salisbury, to take that Command — The Governor has ordered 4800 
Men into the Field, but, what Number will actually get there, it 
is impossible, at present to say. However, Men are assembling 
daily — The Horse are to serve for 2 months the Foot for 3 — but, 
all that Genl. Smallwood can do, for a while, will be, to endeavour 
to harrass the enemy's Parties, to cut ofif their Convoys, and per- 
haps, now & then, break up an outpost. Still, I fear the Militia 
will get diecouraged, & tired of the business, unless supported by 
Continental Troops: However, if the Virginians wd. really send on 


the Men whom they have promised, & the Continentals were 
equipped, & marched to the Westward, & the Mihtia of this State 
wd. also turn out spiritedly, I hope, by the Exertions of the good 
People of So. Carolina, Lord CornwalHs' mad Career wd. be soon 
checked — But alas! when may we really, & reasonably, expect that 
all these things will come to pass, and, untill they do, what must 
be the Sufferings of our Friends in that unhappy State — I have 
seen Colo. Jas. WiUiams'^ whose affair with Innis (not killed, as 
you have heard, but recovering of his wound,) was truly brilliant 
— He is gone on with a Determination to distinguish himself as a 
Partisan, & I beheve he will — I have put, both him & Sumpter, 
(each of whom may be of service but they will never agree) under 
Genl. Smallwood's Command — I wait, with the utmost Impatience, 
to hear what is intended to be done for our Country, by Genl. 
Washington, with the aid of our Ally — We have not a Letter from 
Philada. since Mr. Bee's of the ... . ulto — I request that imme- 
diately, after receiving this, you will inform me, of every material 
transaction to the Northwd. & get the Board of War to send your 
dispatches, by the line of Expresses which is extablished from Phil- 
ada. to Hillsbo. — The Bills are not yet arrived — pray forward 'em, 
also the Arms, & mihtary Stores, which are much wanted — Under 
the first Impression of Lord Cornwalhs's Letter & Conduct, I had 
thought of writing to him, & of threatening Retaliation, on the 
Property of those who are avowedly his Friends: However, I 
have as yet, declined it, because, he probably wd: disregard a 
Threat which we cd. not, for the present, execute to any great 
degree, & because, I hope the Property of his Friends in So. Caro- 
lina will, in Time be appUed to a better purpose — But, I trust, 
that Congress will, immediately take Some proper Measure on 
this point. None occurs to me so proper, as the Burning Towns or 
Houses in G. Britain — why Dr. Frankhn prevented as is said Paul 
Jones's so doing, I cant, conceive, but, I am sure, nothing wd. so 
effectually put a stop to the Enemy's cruelties, in this respect, as 
Retaliation and, Seriously, I wish, & shall expect, — that some 
thing more than Threats may now take Place — It is Time to con- 
vince our Enemies that we dare to retaliate — Armand's Corps, 

' Afterwards killed at Kings Mountain. He certainly did not agree with 
Sumter's men, for they refused to serve under him (McCrady So. Ca. in the 
Rev., 1775-1780, p. 764, Draper's Kings Mountains and its Heroes, p. 168. 


much reduced, are gone to Warren to recruit— while Washington 
& Nellson are at HaHfax— not above 25 of their Men well enough 
for duty — 150 of the Maryland Troops were retaken by Marion 
on their way to C. Town, but 70 of 'em went to the Enemy in 
Town & the rest have never joined the Army — it is supposed they 
are strolUng abt. the Country, or gone Home— The Enemy's prin- 
cipal Posts are at the Waxaws, & to the Westward of the Catawba 
— they had sent some detachmts. to repossess Ninety-Six and 
Pedee — their force at Camden not considerable.

Our last Ace*', from the Westward are, that the Enemy entered

killed some of their advanced party, but, finally, retreated to, & 
are on the East side of the Yadkim, except ab'. 250 Horse, (Mihtia) 
left at Sahsbury, to go downwards, & watch the Enemy's Motions

— not a Virginian is yet arrived here — when Gen^ Gates will 
send on, or march with, the rest of the regulars, now here, (many 
of whom he says are still unequipped,) or, when We shall receive 
any considerable reinforcements, I know not — the present pros- 
pect is truly disagreeable, for every thing goes on slowly — we

intended for us, by the grand Army & our AUies— I wish our Hopes 
may not be vain.

the 1^*. Instant, the Enemy were seen on the March, ab*. 3 miles 
above Charlotte, w*''. 600 Men, & 2 field pieces supp''. to be En- 
deav''^. to join Ferguson who was in Burke County, but going 
down to meet this party, in order to attack our forces to the

Edwards are amongst the number of Gent, shipd off & it is said 
they are sent to S*. Augustine. Oct^ 5. 1 780— Thursday. A.M.— 
Pray have Morgan's Promotion dispatched immediately — it will be 
very injurious to a man of his Experience & Bravery to put him 
under the Command of the Mihtia Brigad" — I desire that you will 
make a Point of obtaining this Rank for him.

HiUsbor". Oct. 12*^ 1780 

Congress will receive, by this express, an account, just now come 
to Hand, of Major Fergusons defeat, which I hope will soon be 
confirmed — The Genl. will, without doubt, inform Congreess, of 
Lord CornwalUs' Strength, & Situation — &, (by what We can dis- 
cover, from some intercepted Letters,) of his Plan & Dispositions — 

* Making Morgan a Brigadier would (and did) give him command over the 
state officers when thrown with him. 


He will also, I presume, send on Copies of those Letters, to have 
the parts of 'em w'=^. are in Cyphers, unriddled— &, I wish they 
may be decyphered & returned, as soon as possible — but the Genl. 
is in so great a Hurry, to send on this News, I can add no more, 
than that we have not reed, a Line from you since yours of the 
11th Septr. — w*'*', on Consideration I apprehend you will allow is 
rather inattentive to Us— that Lord Cornwallis is going on with 
Burning & Hanging — Capt. Conyers assured me Yesterday that 
200 Houses have been burn'd — Col. Morgan went from hence last 
Saturday with ab*. 180 Regulars & Gen^ Smallwood went off on 
Monday w*"* abt. 90 of the Reg^ Horse. The rest of the Regu- 
lars are now here & when they or any of them will go on I can't 
say, pretty support this from the Continent — ab*. 100 Virginians 
of the 18 Months men arrived here a few days ago quite ragged & 
unequipped & here they are still — No other force from that Coun- 
try — In short if any Thing material is done for our poor State in 
any reasonable Time it will probably be by the despised shabby 
Militia — I am in Haste Gen*.

Fergusons Defeat — 

Complaints of want of support. 


Addressed: The Honble. The Delegates of The State of South 

In Congress 
c/o M^ Baird, at Philadelphia Sahsbury Nov^ 20. 1780 


My last Letter to you was, from Hillsborough, ab*. the 13*^ 
ulto — Since w'^'^. Time, I have rec*. your sev^ favours by Cap*. 
Vanderhorst, & one, of the 14*^^ ult°., w*^^ he took from the Express 
who had it in Charge, — but no others, for, having been down the 
Country, & Gen^ Gates expecting I w'^. return to Hillsboro., he 
left, with the Board of War, all the Letters he had for me — This 
Circumstance has, I presume, prevented my receiving any, of a 
subsequent date, from you — I imagine, however, there are several 
such, at Hillsboro. — I have sent for 'em, and shall answer 'em, 
when they come to Hand — 

I fully intended going back to Hillsboro, but, at Cross Creek, 
on my Way up. heard such Acco*^ from So. Carohna viz*; "that 
Lord Cornwallis was dead — Camden evacuated, & that the whole 
British Army had crossed the Congaree, on their way to Georgia, 
also that Gates had marched from Hillsborough, the 5th inst., (w'='*. 
he did,) & was proceeding rapidly after them &c" — that I thought 
it proper to push for our own State as fast as possible — I therefore 
determined, instead of proceeding to Hillsboro, to cross the Coun- 
try, by the nearest Route, for this place, which I did, & arrived 
here. Yesterday — on arriving here, I found that the good News I 
heard on the Road was entirely false — probably, you will have 
been amused, with similar acco*^, at Philad''. I will therefore give 
you an exact Relation of Matters, as they are at present — The 
Enemy have a post (strong wth Redoubts) of betw° 5 & 600 Men 
at Camden where Lord Rawdon commands — another, fortified, of 
ab*. 300 at Ninety-Six under Cruger — one at Augusta, abt. the 
same Number under Brown — & Lord Cornwalhs is, with the main 
Army, ab*. 1600 Reg"., at Winnsborough, on Broad River, ab*. 45 
Miles from Congaree, & the same distance from Camden & Nine- 
ty-Six — So that he may, pretty readily, reinforce Camden, Ninety 
Six, or Augusta, or draw his Troops from these posts to his main 
Body, &, with that, or his whole Army, retreat down, or advance 
up, the Country, as Circumstances render most eligible — Smallwood 
& Morgan are at 6 Mile Creek, in this State, ab*. 16 Miles below 


Charlotte (on the Road to Camden) with ab*. 200 regulars, 1100 
militia & 150 Cavalry — Gates is just marching from hence, to 
join them, w*^ ab*. 600 Regulars, & Sumpter lay, a few days ago, 
between Tyger & Enoree Rivers, w*''. (it is said) ab*. 1000 Militia, 
but, I believe he has moved more Westwardly, with a View of 
giving a Blow to a party of the Enemy, in that Direction— Gen'. 
Butler is here, with ab*. 150 Men, guarding Prisoners— Gen'. 
Stevens is at Hillsboro., (& ord<^. from thence hither,) w^^^ some Vir- 
ginia 8 Months Men (MiHtia who deserted in Gates's action, & who 
are cond'^. to serve for 8 Months, on that acco*.) &, ab* 260 Men 
are, somewhere in Virg^. on the March from Maryland — Genl. Har- 
rington is stationed at Cheraws, w*'' ab'. 250 Men, whose Term of 
duty is nearly expired — A Col°. Brown, of this Country, is travel- 
ling near him, w*''. ab*. 150 or 200 Men, & Col°. Marion is moving 
ab*. on Pedee & Kingston, with perhaps 300 — Thus you see what 
force, & of what kind, we really have on the Ground, & how it is 
scattered — However, I hope that, as soon as Gen'. Green arrives, 
he will collect 'em, to a good tenable Position, &, occasionally de- 
tach strong Parties to oppose the Enemy's light Troops who do 
the most Mischief, to harass the Enemy, circumscribe their Lim- 
its, & in Time obUge, 'em to retire to Ch.Town, & give us an op- 
portunity of reestabhshing Civil Government, in some part of the 
Country, of electing, & convening a Legislature, & of making & 
enforcing Laws — but, this will not be the Work of a day — when, or 
whether, we shall recover the Town, must depend on Events not 
to be foreseen, at present — here at least — I wish, however, the 
Spaniards may really do what they threaten, & that Aid from our 
AlHes was more powerful & successful — the Col°; & Justices of 
Surry County took upon 'em to release all the N°. Carolina Tories 
taken in Fergusons defeat, on giving Bail to appear at Court- 
but, I imagine many, if not all of 'em will return to the Enemy — 
they put the ofi&cers on Parol, they have broke it & gone off, prob- 
ably to the Enemy — & they enHsted the S°. Carolina Tories 
taken in that defeat, (116) to serve in the Cont'. Army, 6 Months 
— However, 30 of 'em ran away, on the March from the Moravian 
Towns to this place— the rest (76) were released from their En- 
Ustment, & are here in Goal— this was a strange & unaccountable 
step of the Col°. & Magistrates— 
A Colo. Cleveland hung 8 or 10 of the most noted horse Thieves 


& Tories (of N°. CaroKna,) taken in Fergusons defeat, & Lord 
Cornwallis has complained to Smallwood of such Cruelty, tho' he 
& those Acting under him have hanged many more of our People — 
It is said (& I believe it,) that, of the Prisoners whom Barr took 
at Augusta, he gave up 4 to the Indians, who killed 'em, cut off 
their Heads & kicked their Bodies ab*. the Streets, & that he, 
(Brown,) hung upwards of 30 Prisoners — ^his Lordship therefore 
has mistaken the Side on which the Cruelty lies — Gates has carried 
the Letter wt^. him; However, I will send you a copy of it, & of 
the Answer, wc''. will be sent to it, when one is sent — I am endeav- 
ouring to procure authentick Information, respecting the Hanging, 
House Burning, Plundering, & other Cruelties, & Acts of Bar- 
barity committed by the British in S°. Carolina & Georgia, & shall 
resolve, when I have obtained it, what to do, or write & to whom 
on those Points — I do not chuse to take up the Matter, with*, 
good Authority — From a letter dated the 4*''. In^*., wrote by Les- 
lie to C. & found on an Emissary coming this Way from Portsmo. 
in Virg''; (of w*'^. I presume Gov'. Jefferson has sent a Copy to 
Congress) & other circumstances it appears that the plan of those 
Generals was to have formed a Junction of the Troops under their 
respective Commands — that they hoped to do so in this State, & 
expected to have been powerfully aided by the Tories of this 
Country: However, Fergusons defeat has frustrated that plan, & I 
hope it will never take Effect — but I think it probable that Lord 
C. will call for Leslie's Troops, or some other Reinforcement, to 
the Southward — if so. We shall have more Trouble than we other- 
wise should — I omitted to mention, that there are some (a few) 
Regulars still at Hillsboro, who can*, march, for want of shoes & 
cloaths — Lord Cornwallis has proposed to exchange the People 
taken on Kings Mountain, for our MiUtia, in his hands, but, I 
think that proposal must not be accepted — Genl. Huger tells me, 
he wrote you an Acco*. of Sumpter's successful Resistance of 
Major Wemys's Attack, and of his having taken that officer — 
he is a valuable acquisition to us, but, I am sorry to find that he 
is only slightly wounded, & likely to recover — I wish he may not 
give Sumpter the slip, for he keeps him with him — I have seen in a 
Cha^Town Gazette, of Oct. 14*^ a congratulatory Address to Lord 
Cornwallis on his defeating Gates, & a proclamation of his Lord- 
ship for sequestering the Estates of Rebels (in the List of whom I 


presume we shall stand,) but, as I suppose Rivington has printed 
that Address & proclamation I do not send 'em — I shall expect 
with Impatience, Major Lee's Corps, Genl. Green, & Letters from 
you, all which, I presume, are on the Way— pray give me every 
material piece of Intelhgence, as expeditiously as possible — I shall 
set off for Charlotte, in 3 or 4 days, in hopes of an interview with 
Genl. Sumpter, there, or, at some other convenient place, having 
sent to him for that purpose. 

I am with great Esteem

P.S. Salisbury, Nov. 23'^: 1780 

The person by whom this is to go, not having set out, as he 
promised, I've kept it open to add any Thing which might occur 
before he went — Col", or Major Davy (of which gallant Officer 
with*. Doubt you have heard,) is just come up, from Smallwoods 
Camp — which is still as above mentioned — Col: Davy's Report of 
the Strength & posts of the Enemy, & of ours, is much the same 
as above, except that Lord C — has moved somewhat lower down the 
Country, & so has Sumpter — the latter is below his Lordship, 
ab*. S:W. of him — C: is at Shivers Ferry, on the E:Side of Broad 
River — Sumpter below that Ferry, between Broad & Saluda — his 
present object is to collect a force, & by going so low down the 
Country, give those who are desirous, an opportunity, to join him 
— Davy says Tarlton is in Quest of Marion, & doing much mischief 
in burning houses on Santee — I wish Lee's Corps were come, but 
fear they will stop in Virginia — Davy further adds, that the 
Enemy mount many of their Infantry, in order to proceed rapidly, 
with their Cavalry, the latter of which consists of, at least, 250 
good — I fear the Virginia 18 Months men will not come on, (for 
Genl. Mulenburgh, who was on the March Southwardly, with 
1500, turned back) unless the Enemy sh'^. leave Virginia & I am 
sorry to find that we must rely so much on our own Efforts. I 
mean on those of the Carolina's — However I will endeavour to 
prevail on CoP. Cleveland, & oth. Mountain Men to assist us for 
a short Time, with a party of Volunteers (they will not stay long) 
& I shall, undoubtedly, use every Exertion to prevail with our 
own People, to act as they ought to do. Inclosed is a Continua- 
tion of your Appointment, which I transmit, lest any doubt sh^. 


arise, hereafter, (at the End of 12 Months, from the Time of your 
Nomination) ab*. your continuing in the delegation — I intended to 
have sent it, long ago, but the Matter slipt my Memory. 

Excuse Haste, for I have not Time to correct, & transcribe this 
Letter, being obliged to write many dispatches, & transact several 
Matters, before I set out for Charlotte.

a tedious and aflflicting sickness, which he submitted to with Chris- 
tian patience, WiUiam ElUott, Esq., late of Beaufort, in this state: 
He was a most afifectionate husband and parent, an indulgent mas- 
ter, a sincere friend, and deservedly bore through life the character 
of a truly virtuous, concientious and honest man. We hear his 
remains, in consequence of his desire, are to be interred at Beau- 
fort,"— Capt. Thomas Ladson, of John's Island. (Thursday,

those brave ofi&cers who signalized themselves in the gallant and 
successful defence of Fort Moultrie on the 28th of June, 1776. 
As a brave young officer, his country feels his loss, and as a youth 
endowed with the most noble sentiments of honour, his friends and 
afflicted family greatly mourn his absence. — Mrs. Susannah Watts, 
widow of the deceased Mr. Thomas Watts, (Thursday, April

sincere attachment to his country to whose cause he cheerfully 
sacrificed all the comforts of a life of ease and affluence; and it

Deaths.] After a short illness, Mr. Alexander Adamson. — 
"Last Sunday, in his puerile age. Master WiUiam Elliott, son of 
the deceased William Elliott, Esq. He was a promising child ; his 
natural endowments were such that had his life been spared, 
would have made him a credit to his family, an honour to his coun- 
try, and a blessing to mankind. The impHcit obedience that he 
ever paid to the commands of his mother, and the esteem and regard 
that shown conspicuous in his whole deportment towards his sis- 
ters, strongly mark him to have been a dutiful son, and a loving 
and kind brother : He has left behind him to regret his loss, a dis- 
consolate mother, and two weeping sisters." (Thursday, October 
15, 1778.)

pitable, benevolent and generous, a loving husband, a tender 
father, and a kind, indulgent master. (Thursday, October 23,

now regret his death. — At Beaufort, Mrs. Stevens, wife of Mr. 
Daniel Stevens. — In the bloom of youth, Mr. George Parsons, only 
son of the Honourable James Parsons, Esquire : The many amiable 
qualities that adorned this young gentleman, occasion his loss to 
be most sincerely deplored by all who knew him. The situation 
of his disconsolate parents, thus bereaved of their only hope, may 
be conceived, but language would fail to describe it. — Mr. John

patriot and a hero.

An Artillery Man 

"Behold, in Honour's sacred Bed 

Brave Wilkins drew his latest Breath; 
See him among th' illustrious dead, 
Fall'n by the rigid Hand of Death! 

"While he the levell'd Tube did aim 
Against his Country's raging Foe; 
The fatal Ball, like Light'ning came, 
And struck, alas! the deadly Blow. 

"Full well he knew the dext'rous Art, 
With skilful Hand, and watchful eye, 
To point the Tube, or wield the Dart, 
And force his stubborn Foe to fly. 

"No less in Social Life he shone. 
A Friend to every milder Art; 
Rehgion claimed him for her own. 

And Justice swayed his honest Heart. 

"Alas! that an untimely Blow 

Should snatch him from his weeping Friends, 
Sure every Breast with Grief must glow, 
Sure ev'ry Heart Compassion lends. 

"His widow'd Spouse with heart-felt Sighs, 
And helpless Babes, his Loss bewail; 
While sympathetic Tears arise 
In all who hear the mournful Tale. 

"Not unaveng'd our Hero fell. 

Full dear his precious Blood was bought; 
Beaufort's ensanguined Plains can tell. 
How well his brave Associates fought."

Owen Roberts Esq. 

Colonel of the Continental Corps of Artillery, 

Raised by the State of South-CaroUna; 

Who was slain in the attack of the British lines at Stono-Ferry 

June 20th, 1779. 

"To worth approv'd, at merits honou'd shrine. 
The muse that tribute pays so justly thine, 
Lamented Roberts! whose virtues great and good, 
Were, for thy country's safety, sealed in blood. 
If sorrowing friendship could that worth display, 
Which would have grac'd the Greeks heroick lay; 
Thy memory should to future ages dear, 
Be ever honour'd with a grateful tear. 
In every act thy patriot spirit shown, 
But most in that when Freedom called for one, 
Whose generous soul would every danger brave. 
Her wrongs to right, her right from wrong to save. 


For this, her soldier, thou her cause embrac'd. 

Thy country happy in a choice well plac'd; 

For this, thou brav'd grim war's terrifick low'r, 

And mov'd undaunted through the deathful show'r. 

But here, alas! how shall my muse relate? 

The cruel mandate of relentless fate 

Arrests the good, the vaUent and the just. 

And bids him mingle with his native dust; 

His soul, serenely great, attends the call, 

Nor seeks to shun, but glories in his fall. 

Your praises then, O Carolinians, give. 

And in your annals, let him ever hve; 

Let every honour be bestow'd by fame. 

For sure such merit must deserve a name."

Death.] In the 82d year of her age, Mrs. Mary ElUs. (Wednes-

On Thursday night last week, a small party of mounted Rebel 
mihtia surrounded the house of Andrew Williamson, Esq; formerly 
Bridagier-General of the South-Carolina mihtia, about 7 miles 
from town, and without allowing him time to put on his clothes, 
carried him off prisoner. On intelligence being received of this, 
Major Eraser, with 90 of his dragoons, was detached next day in 
quest of them. After having effected a circuitous march of more 
than 70 miles through the woods, with the most profound secrecy, 
on Saturday Morning the Major surprised their main camp at the 
Horse-Shoe, killed 14 on the spot, wounded several, took Col. 
Isaac Hayne, their commander, prisoner, and released General 
Williamson from his confinement at a house in the neighbourhood. 

The anxiety to rescue General Wilhamson, and the rebels not 
making the smallest shew of resistence, but betaking themselves 
to the woods in every direction, prevented their sustainmg a 
greater loss. Their numbers before that morning were estimated 
at more than 200 — Their own accounts made them much stronger. 

Amonge the killed, was the second in command. Lieutenant 
Colonel M'Lauchlan; his brother Capt. M'Lauchlan was danger- 
ously wounded. Col. Hayne was brought to town on Sunday, 
and is now lodged in the Provost. 

Death.] George Forbes, Esq; a gentleman of considerable prop- 
erty in the island of Jamaica, who came here some months ago 
for the recovery of his health. (Wednesday, July 11, 1781.) 

Early on Sunday a considerable party of mounted Rebels, 
chiefly Mihtia under Henry^ [sic] Hampton, who formerly re- 
sided at the Congarees, made a sudden irruption into Goose creek 
parish, surrounded the church durmg the time of service, made 
prisoners of the congregation, to some of whom they gave Paroles, 

5 According to McCrady (vol. 1780-'83, p. 328), Col. Wade Hampton com- 
manded this raid, not Henry. 


and took several horses. About two o'clock they came to the 
Quarter House. Lieut. Waugh, with 18 convalescents, of the 
South-CaroHna Dragoons, having a Httle before received intelU- 
gence of some flying parties of Rebels being seen in the neighbour- 
hood, had just then mounted and was going out to reconnoitre; 
he was immediately attacked. The great disparity of force ad- 
mitted but a short contest, in which the gallant Waugh cut down 
John Wright, of Wasmasaw, a Rebel Captain, and it is said, two 
others. He then surrendered, and was afterwards shot. Some 
of the Rebel Ofi&cers affected to regret the death of so brave a 
man, and to condemn the infamous deed.^ 

Several gentlemen from town were then at the Quarter House, 
some of whom got off; others were taken and admitted to their 
parol. Mr. WilUam Trusler of this town, in attempting to make 
his escape, was shot. 

After staying there about two hours, and regahng themselves with 
better fare than they have been accustomed to, the whole party 
decamped. (Wednesday, July 18, 1781.) 

Deaths.] Lieut. M'Leod, of the North-Carohna RoyaUsts. —

under the command of Capt. Turner, posted in a house on Cloud's 
Creek, near the Mouth of Saludy, when after an obstinate resist- 
ance of an hour, the house was carried by storm, with the loss of 
only one man mortally and three shghtly wounded. The enemy, 
on this occasion, lost Capt. Turner, and 21 men killed. (Wednes- 
day, November 28, 1781.) 

By advices from the back country we learn, that Major Cunning- 
hame, a few days after the affair at Cloud's Creek, attacked a 
party of forty rebels, under the command of Col. Hayes, posted in 
a block-house, at Mr. Edgehill's plantation, within fifteen miles

house was set on fire, and the roof fell in, when they were obliged 
to submit with the loss of Col. Hayes,^ Capt. Owens, Capt.

The next notice records the death of his wife, whom he married in Dec, 1780;

We are informed from Savannah, that about Christmas last, a 
gang of banditti came to a house on Daufusky Island, where

Death.] On Tuesday last, Mrs. Conroy, the lady of Lieut.

Death.] In the 17th year of his age, Mr. James Wilson, son of 
Doctor Robert Wilson of this place. The modesty and good sense 
of this young gentleman, along with his steady application to seri- 
ous study, had given rise to the pleasing hope of his one day becom- 
ing the pride of his family, and an ornament to Society. . . . 
(Wednesday, June 26, 1782.) 

By accounts from the country we learn that Mr. John Laurens, 


a Lieutenant-Colonel in the rebel army, and a son of Mr. Henry 
Laurens, now in London, was lately killed near Combahee river, in 
attempting to impede the operations of a detachment of his Ma- 
jesty's troops. 

When we contemplate the character of this young gentleman, 
we have only to lament his great error on his outset in life, in es- 
pousing a pubhck cause which was to be sustained by taking up 
arms against his Sovereign. Setting aside his single deviation 
from the path of rectitude, we know no one trait of his history 
which can tarnish his reputation as a man of honour, or affect his 
character as a gentleman. His generosity of temper and liberality 
of opinion, were as extensive as his abiUties; as a soldier, he fought 
for glory, and as a citizen he pursued what he thought to be the 
true interests of his country — He constantly condemned every op- 
pressive measure adopted against the LoyaHsts, and always con- 
tended that a steady and disinterested adherence to poHtical ten- 
ets, though in opposition to his own, ought to render their possessor 
an object of esteem rather than of persecution. His humanity 
can be no better illustrated than by mentioning what we are well 
assured was the case, that he highly reprobated the refusal of 
Matthews, the Rebel Governour, to the proposal from this garri- 
son, respecting the purchase of a quantity of rice; on this generous 
principal, that it was cruel to withhold from those persons whom 
the Assembly of the Province had banished, the provisions which 
were necessary for the support in a foreign country, of the slaves 
they were to carry with them. 

While we were thus marking the death of an enemy who was 
dangerous to our Cause from his abihties, we hope we shall stand 
excused for paying tribute, at the same time, to the moral excel- 
lencies of his character. — Happy would it be for the distressed 
families of those persons who are to leave this garrison with his 
Majesty's troops, that another Laurens could be found.^^ (Sat- 
urday, September 7, 1782.) 

Deaths.] "On Sunday last at Ashley River, greatly lamented

On page 67, it is stated that Ephraim Mikell Seabrook, Son of 
William Seabrook, wrote the Hist. P. E. Church of Edisto Is., 
1853; this is an error, it was written by Ephraim Mikell Seabrook, 
Son of Ephraim Mikell, No. 22 (see page 29). Thos. Wilkes Sea-

In the number of this Magazine for July 1901 (vol. 2, p. 246) 
there is given an account of the last occasion on which the com- 
mand of General Francis Marion encountered the British, known 
as the affair at Wadboo, which took place 29**^ August, 1782. The 
contradictory statements given in the Royal Gazette as published 
at the time and in Simms' Life of Marion are compared. By a 
most fortunate and fortuitous circumstance it is now possible to 
publish Marion's own report of the encounter. In an unpubhshed 
letter from John Mathews then Governor of the State to Arthur 
Middleton then a delegate to the Congress in Philadelphia from 
South Carolina, a copy of Gen^ Marion's report of the affair is 
enclosed. There is not the sUghtest doubt of its authenticity as 
both letter and copy have remained among Arthur Middleton's 
papers in the hands of his descendants. The report is of the order 
to be expected from Gen^ Marion — concise, clear, and free from 
all exaggeration. It is as follows: 

Wadboo S*. John's 30: Aug —1782 

My last acquainted you that I would Return to this place, I 
got here the 28' inst. yesterday. I had notice the Enemy was 
crossing above Bigging Bridge, at Fardo's Plantation. I immedi- 
ately formed and sent to Major Conyers to come on with the 
State Cavabry,my Guard at Strawberry was ordered in, before they 
arrived — Major Frazier with a hundred horse & some Coloured 
Dragoons, came on in full charge. I let them come within thirty 
yards and threw in a fire from my left which was advanced under 


the cover of three small houses; the fire was so well directed that 
the Enemy immediately broke and Retreated in Confusion, leaving 
a Capt° Robert Gilhs and three men and five horses killed, one 
prisoner and three Horses and a Mule taken, our loss was my am- 
munition Waggon with my baggage, the Driver got into a fright 
and drove off contrary to Orders. 

A few Militia mounted Charged the party with the Waggon 
and Retook her but was Oblige to leave her as they was within 
One hundred yards of the Main body, and we could not Remove 
from our position without giving the Enemy the greatest advan- 
tage in an Open field, which is what they desired to do, they made 
several Attempts to come round me, but my Men was so alert in 
changing positions and keeping to the fences, that they dare not 
come on — they took the Road to Hugers Bridge; Major Conyers 
is gone after them — they must have Several wounded a good deal 
of Blood was seen in the Way they Retreated. My Guard on 
Wando River took a Schooner with Wood and Provisions, with a 
parcel of Negroes going to Town, shall be glad to know if they 
may be made a Prize of agreable to your Proclamation. 

I have the honor to be your Excellency's
